What are the Benefits of HNBR Molded & Extruded Parts for Industrial & Commercial?
HNBR is also known as Highly Saturated Nitrile or HSN. It’s a special class of nitrile rubber that has been hydrogenated to increase the saturation of the butadiene segment of the carbon polymer backbone.
The compound withstands both hot and cold temperatures and is renowned for its physical toughness. Additional characteristics include:
- High mechanical strength
- Excellent heat and oxidation stability
- Resistance to modern oils, fuels, and coolants
- Improved wear resistance
- Temperature range from -60 degrees Celsius to 160 degrees Celsius
The ability to withstand long-term exposure to heat, oil, and chemicals makes HNBR versatile yet dependable. This material is used across a range of markets that can benefit from HNBR:
- Fluid Power
- Oil and gas
- Consumer electronics
The combination of robust physical and chemical properties, plus optimum performance in extreme temperatures, make HNBR perfect for a variety of applications. Common uses for HNBR rubber products include:
- Air-conditioning seals and hoses
- Engine seals, grommets and gaskets
- Fuel system seals and hoses
- Serpentine belts
- Suspension seals
- Piston seals
- Blowout preventers
- Vee packing
- Heat exchanger gaskets
- Oilfield packers and hangers
- Papermill rolls
- Rotary shaft seals
- Steel mill rolls
