About NBR and HNBR

Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Rubber (NBR) is a good choice for applications where seals will not be exposed to harsh cleaning regimes, ozone or superheated steam. These materials are copolymers of butadiene and acrylonitrile. The percentage of these in the NBR and HNBR formulations determines their performance characteristics.
