Thomson Style# Nitrile 364

Nitrile has very good resistance to petroleum-based Solvents and Lubricants. Standard grades of NBR are typically resistant to mineral oil-based lubricant and greases, many grades of hydraulic fluids, aliphatic hydrocarbons, silicone oils and greases and water to about 80°C.

NBR is generally not resistant to aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, fuels with a high aromatic content, polar solvents, glycol-based brake fluids and non-flammable hydraulic fluids. NBR also has low resistance to ozone, weathering and aging, but in many applications this has no negative effect.

This is a general guide and should not be the sole means of selecting or rejecting this material.

Temperature and pressure values are general guidelines and may not represent continuous service. For specific applications please consult A.R. Thomson Group’s customer service at the branch nearest you.
