Nitrile / NBR ORing

Nitrile / NBR O-Ring

Nitrile is the most widely used elastomer in the seal industry, and commonly used in o-ring and sealing applications.

The popularity of nitrile is due to its excellent resistance to petroleum products and its ability to be compounded for service over a temperature range of -22°F to 212°F.

Nitrile provides excellent compression set, tear, and abrasion resistance.

The nitrile o-ring is commonly referred to as a Buna o-ring, or NBR o-rings.
