Description: Style AG40NBRPG is a 40 durometer premium grade nitrile gasketing material designed for gasketing applications that require a solid rubber material that provides maximum oil resistance. Style AG40NBRPG provides users with an operating temperature of -30°F to +220°F. 40 durometer premium grade nitrile gives users a longer service life in demanding applications than other grades of nitrile. Also known as Buna-N, Style AG40NBRPG premium grade nitrile is formulated to meet the ASTM D 2000 M1BG 407 specification.
Atlantic Gasket’s premium grade nitrile is available in a wide range of durometers, ranging from as soft as 40 Durometer (AG40NBRPG) to as hard as 90 Durometer (AG90NBRPG) with standard durometers in between. Style AG40NBRPG is available in the color black and can be manufactured in a wide range of standard thicknesses, ranging from as thin a 1/64" to as thick as 1/4", with custom thicknesses available upon request. 40 durometer premium grade nitrile has a smooth finish and can be converted into rolls ranging from as narrow as 1/4 wide up to 48" in width. Additional widths are available upon request. Atlantic Gasket has the ability to fabricate 40 durometer premium grade nitrile by die-cutting or waterjet cutting to meet your design and production requirements.
