Unique properties of Nitrile Rubber Washers
The unique properties of nitrile rubber washers make them perhaps the best choice of all for use with fuels, oils, fats and indeed any other fluids that have any concentration of these. And what’s more, nitrile rubber washers are also suitable for used at temperatures ranging between -40 degrees and +120 degrees centigrade. Resistance to temperature will of course depend on the quality and the grade of the washers chosen – we can advise on the perfect washers to suit your needs, we’re ready and waiting to hear from you.
Because of the material’s unique resistance, some of the most common examples of these nitrile rubber washers in use can be found in the food service and gastronomy industries. Infinite configurations are of course available as mentioned above, though as a rule of thumb it is advised that the buyers opt for the thinnest gauge of gasket possible for its intended use.
A good quality rubber washer has a level of versatility that is simply unrivalled. Even the simplest nitrile rubber washers are indispensable for use with water, acid, petrol, gas and in some instances high and low temperatures. This means the ability to create important seals regardless of the presence of elements that would cause other washers would quickly corrode or fail altogether.
One key tip however is to never assume that quality is a guarantee no matter which rubber washers are being bought and who they are being bought from. At Stephens Gaskets we believe in only the very best the industry has to offer – we expect you to settle for nothing less.
