Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber

ARLANXEO's HNBR product, under the Therban brand, offers excellent properties for engine components. The polarity of HNBR is directly influenced by the ACN content. Higher ACN reduces the polymer's polarity in non-polar media like oil, grease, fat, and fuels. HNBR combines excellent oil resistance...
