Quality blended Nitrile rubber with a high degree of oil resistance. Excellent for manufacturing plants and machine shops where exposure to shop oils can degrade standard rubber.
In areas that are exposed to grease and oil, use Nitrile rubber. Oil and Chemical Resistance / Nitrile compound: Nitrile rubber (acrylonitrile butadiene rubber) has resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, acid and alkali. Example include motor oil, hydraulic oil and petroleum greases and paint thinner. Nitrile rubber performs poorly when exposed to oxygenated solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Mats in oily areas must be properly maintained. Examples include MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) methylene chloride, xylene and bleach.
