Nitrile Rubber Data Sheet

Technical Data Sheet:  Nitrile Rubber

General Notes:

Nitrile is a general purpose oil resistant polymer which has good solvent, oil, water and hydraulic fluid resistance, good compression set, abrasion resistance and tensile strength.  Nitrile should not be used in highly polar solvents such as acetone and MEK ozone chlorinated hydrocarbons and nitro hydrocarbons.
