Buna N Rubber
Buna N rubber is a synthetic rubber compound that is also known as standard Nitrile rubber. The compound comprises co-polymers: acrylonitrile and butadiene. Acrylonitrile is a volatile organic liquid. Butadiene is a synthetic chemical compound. When mixed, these two polymers react and produce one of strongest oil-resistant rubber compounds currently available.
Buna N rubber products are resistant to both solvents and oils. Pierce-Roberts molded rubber products that are manufactured with Buna N are appropriate for many industrial applications, including oil hoses, fuel hoses, o-rings, and rubber gaskets. Buna N is similar to Buna S in that it can be vulcanized.
