Nitrile rubber is an extremely versatile material which has a number of uses, not only restricted to nitrile washers and gaskets. It is perhaps most commonly used in rubber gloves as a non-allergenic alternative to latex. It’s also used in hoses, cable jackets and transmission belts in cars.
High Resistance Levels
Nitrile washers offer unique levels of resistance, making it a common material used in the food catering industries. It can be manufactured to very thin gauges, whilst still maintaining all of its impressive properties. Nitrile is ideal for use with fats, fuels and oils and is even resistant to water, acid and gas. Whereas other materials might corrode or degrade, nitrile will keep soldiering on.
Suitable For a Wide Range of Temperatures
The temperature resistant properties of nitrile washers are also pretty impressive. The material is suitable for use at temperatures ranging between -40 degrees celsius and +120 degrees celsius, depending on the grade of nitrile washers used. For this reason, nitrile is often used in aeronautical applications, as well as footwear, sponges, expanding foams and even floor mats.
Good Oxidation Resistance
Nitrile rubber compounds have excellent resistance to oils, fuels and grease and are therefore ideal for use in applications with fuel and oil, as well as being very commonly use in the automotive industry. With good oxidation resistance as well as excellent resistance to a number of solvents, it’s easy to see why nitrile is the material of choice for many applications not only in the United Kingdom, but across the world.
