Linatrile® 55

Nitrile: Resistance to organic oils and chemicals 
Specifying the right lining material for oil or chemical service used to be a compromise. Natural rubber gives good abrasion resistance, but is not suitable for oil immersion. Normal nitrile-based rubbers offer excellent oil resistance, but their poor wear performance limits their use in high abrasion applications. Linagard® NBR rubber is a nitrile based rubber specifically formulated to give good abrasion resistance in the presence of oils and chemicals. Linagard® NBR rubber also exhibits excellent high temperature service and can be used up to 110°C (230°F) with suitable adhesives, or where mechanical fixing is employed.
