Nitrile rubber gaskets are well known for providing excellent resistance against most fuels, oils and grease. It is this resistance that often makes them the first choice for use in automotive, aerospace and oil industries. Nitrile gaskets also feature good physical properties, providing abrasion and tear resistance. A downside of nitrile is that it is not suitable for use with ketones and provides poor ozone and weathering resistance.
Don’t hesitate to get in contact with us if you are unsure what gasket material is most suitable for your application. We are committed to ensuring that you always get the best possible gasket to suit your unique requirements.
Nitrile, unlike many other rubber compounds is able to resist swelling when exposed to oil and fuel substances. This ensures that our nitrile rubber gaskets are able to maintain their sealing capabilities even in harshest environments. Nitrile gaskets also feature a wide operating temperature range, and function particularly well in high temperatures. This makes them the ideal sealing material for use in engines and other high temperature machinery.
In most applications we manufacture our nitrile rubber gaskets from large sheets of nitrile. This enables us to easily produce large format gaskets without any joins or abnormalities. Our highly accurate cutting machinery also enables us to produce small and complex gaskets.
