Nitrile (also known as Buna-N) closed cell sponge rubber is an excellent gasket material for sealing applications that require oil and UV resistance. With a high resistance to vegetable oil, animal oil, and mineral oil, Buna-N also performs well as a gasket or sealing material in petroleum-based applications. Also, Nitrile rubber gasket material is able to maintain its properties in commercial or industrial applications where temperatures range from -40°F to +250°F. Atlantic Gasket Corporation located in Philadelphia is a leading custom gasket and seal manufacturer, offering a wide variety of sponge materials, including three grades of Nitrile (Buna-N) closed cell sponge rubber: soft density C41NBR, medium density C42NBR and firm density C43NBR. These three grades are a pure Nitrile - not a blend, which offers enhanced oil resistance.
|Example Gasket Application||Properties|
|Fuel (gasoline and diesel)||Style C41NBR, C42NBR and C43NBR closed cell Nitrile sponge is a pure Nitrile and is an excellent gasket material for sealing petroleum-based fuels such as gasoline, diesel and other aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons.|
|Non-fuel||Nitrile closed cell sponge works exceptionally well as a gasket material in applications that will be exposed to animal oil, vegetable oil, mineral oil and lubricating oil.|
