|(Nitrile Based Rubber) is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile (ACN). Relative Cost: Low. General Temperature Range: -40° to +225° F. High tensile strength, as well as excellent abrasion, tear, and Compression Set resistance. Very good aging properties under severe operating conditions. Do not have good resistance to ozone, sunlight, or weathering. They should not be stored near ozone-generating electric motors or equipment. Nitrile performs well in: • Dilute acids • Ethylene glycol • Petroleum oils and fuels • Silicone oils and greases • Water (below 212° F) Nitrile does not perform well in: • Aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, xylene) • Automotive brake fluid • Halogen derivatives (carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene) • Ketones (MEK, acetone) • Phosphate ester hydraulic fluids (Skydrol®, Pydraul®) • Strong acids |
Apex GB have over 20 years experience in manufacturing Plastic & Rubber Extrusions, Extruded Profiles and Tubing. We're quite rightfully proud of our reputation for consistently meeting the needs of customers over that time. Because we've remained small and focussed we've also remained more attentitive, more cost effective and more responsive than larger manufacturers.
