O-Rings & Seals | HNBR

Hydrogenated nitrile is a synthetic polymer that results from the hydrogenation of nitrile rubber (NBR). In this process the molecular “double bonds” in the NBR primary polymer chain undergo a hydrogenation process and therefore the term “hydrogenated nitrile” (HNBR). The allowable temperature range extends to 149°C (300°F) with short periods at higher temperature possible. By following design guidelines effective sealing can be achieved at -32°C (-25°F) for static applications. For dynamic applications however, operating temperatures are limited to above -23°C (-10°F). HNBR compounds possess superior mechanical characteristics, particularly their high strength. For sealing applications up to approximately 159°C (300°F), this is an advantage as it prevents extrusion and wear.
