About Nitrile Butadiene Rubber. Nitrile Rubber (a.k.a. NBR, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Rubber, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Latex, Buna-N) is a synthetic polymer made of monomers 1,3-butadiene and acrylonitrile. This rubber is known for its resistance to chemicals, oils and fuels. NBR is produced with a wide range of molecular weights and monomer ratios so basic polymer properties can vary greatly.
Chemical Formula. (C3H3N)x(C4H6)y
Commercial Grades. Grades vary in molecular weight and in acrylonitrile content (typically between 15 and 50%)
Uses. NBR is primarily used in applications where good oil resistance is required, such as rubber seals and O-rings, hose and belting stock, blowout preventers or packers (oil drilling). NBR is used in molding miscellaneous parts, rubber latex products, sponge applications, gaskets, pump stators, gloves and footwear. In addition to rubber compounds, NBR is also used in modification of plastics, adhesives, cements, sealants, coatings and friction materials.
- 1,3-Butadiene + acrylonitrile (emulsion polymerization).
