BRP’s premium grade nitrile rubber, also known as Buna N or NBR rubber, complies to the standards set forth by ASTM D2000, SAE J200 and Mil-R-3065 applications for the automotive, military, and aerospace industries. They have high resistance to petroleum based fluids including hydrocarbons fats, oils, grease standard hydraulic fluids and chemicals and are often used with various fuels types.
Premium grade nitrile rubber is a high quality sheet with excellent fuel and oil resistant qualities, however it’s not recommended for use in applications requiring weathering and UV resistance. Premium grade nitrile rubber is formulated to provide maximum oil resistance.
While the cost of premium grade nitrile rubber is slightly higher, this is offset by longer service life in demanding applications.
