Furthermore, nitrile washers offer unique levels of resistance, making it a common material within the food catering industry. Plus, it can be manufactured to very thin gauges, whilst still maintaining all of its impressive properties. In addition, nitrile is ideal for use with fats, fuels and oils and is even resistant to water, acid and gas. Unlike other materials that might corrode or degrade, nitrile will keep soldiering on.
