Materials

NBR

Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the general term for acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer. The ACN content can vary between 18% and 50%. While the acrylonitrile content is important, the resistance to oil and fuel is more so. Conversely, the elasticity and compression set are not as good. The NBR has good mechanical properties and good wear resistance. However, its resistance to atmospheric agents and the ozone is relatively low.

Chemical resistance Aliphatic hydrocarbons (propane, butane, petroleum, diesel fuel)
Mineral oils and greases
Fire-resistant fluids (HFA, HFB and HFC)
Diluted acids, low-temperature alkaline and saline solutions
Water (up to +100°C max)
Compatibility issue Fuels with high aromatic content
Aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene)
Chlorinated hydrocarbons (trichlorethylene)
Polar solvents (ketone, acetone, acetic acid, ethylene-ester)
Strong acids
Glycol-based brake fluids
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Temperature range -30°C/+100°C
-40°C / +100°C with our low-temperature NBR

EPDM

As an Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer copolymer, EPDM is a rubber commonly used for hot water taps, cooling systems, brake systems, dishwashers and washing machines.

Chemical resistance Hot water and steam up to +150°C
Glycol-based brake fluids (Dot 3 & 4) and silicone-based brake fluids (Dot 5)
Organic and inorganic acids
Cleaning agents, sodium and potassium alkalis
Hydraulic fluids (HFD-R)
Silicone oils and greases
Polar solvents (alcohols, ketones and esters)
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Compatibility issue Mineral oils and greases
Hydrocarbons
Low impermeability to gas
Temperature range -50°C/+150°C

FKM

Depending on their structure and fluorine content, the chemical resistance and resistance to the cold in fluororubbers can vary. This FKM-based rubber is very often used for high-temperature hydraulics and pneumatics, for industrial valves, injection/fuel systems, motor seals and high-vacuum systems.

Chemical resistance Mineral oils and greases, ASTM n°1, IRM 902 and IRM 903 oils.
Fire-resistant liquids (HFD)
Silicone oils and greases
Mineral and vegetable oils and greases
Aliphatic hydrocarbons (propane, butane, petroleum)
Aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene)
Chlorinated hydrocarbons (trichlorethylene)
Fuel (including high alcohol content)
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Compatibility issue Glycol-based brake fluids
Ammonia gas
Organic acids with a low molecular weight (formic and acetic acids)
Temperature range -20°C/+200°C
-40°C / +200°C with our FKM GLT on request

HNBR

This HNBR-based rubber is obtained through selective hydrogenation of the NBR's butadiene groups. It is commonly used for power-assisted steering and for air conditioning.

Chemical resistance Aliphatic hydrocarbons
Mineral and vegetable oils and greases
Fire-resistant fluids (HFA, HFB and HFC)
Diluted acids, saline solutions and bases for operation at an average temperature
Water and steam up to +150°C
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Compatibility issue Chlorinated hydrocarbons
Polar solvents (ketones, esters and ethers)
Strong acids
Temperature range -30°C/+150°C

ACM

Polymers containing ethyl acrylate (or butyl acrylate) have a small amount of monomer, which is necessary for cross-linking; ACM is a material with better heat resistance than NBR. It is often used for automatic gearboxes.

Chemical resistance Mineral oils (motor oils, gear box oils, ATF oils)
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Compatibility issue Glycol-based brake fluids (Dot 3 & 4)
Aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons
Water and steam
Acids, alkalis and amines.
Temperature range - 25°C to + 150°C

VMQ

This VMQ-based rubber is very often used in fuel systems.

Chemical resistance Animal and vegetable oils and greases
Water for operation at an average temperature
Diluted saline solutions
Atmospheric and ozone agents
Compatibility issue Superheated steam up to +120°C
Chlorinated hydrocarbons with a low molecular weight (trichlorethylene)
Aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene)
Temperature range -60°C/+200°C

Polyoxymethylene - POM

Polyoxymethylene (POM or polyacetal) belongs to the thermoplastics, which have a number of advantages - strong mechanical resistance, good creep strength, high resistance to shocks, particularly at low temperatures, good wear resistance, good sliding coefficient, excellent machinability and good dielectric properties. The low water absorption coefficient, unlike polyamide (PA), also gives this material an excellent dimensional stability.

Bronze-filled PTFE

PTFE is a thermoplastic polymer made of tetrafluoroethylene with exceptional properties - very low friction coefficient (adhesive friction and sliding friction are almost equal), physiologically safe for temperatures up to +200°C, excellent electrical insulation properties, and excellent chemical compatibility with the majority of fluids. On the other hand, as this material is plastic and not elastic, so it cannot easily replace rubber bases.

Between 40% and 60% of bronze is added to the PTFE as a filler. This machined material has excellent wear resistance, low creep deformation and good thermal conductivity.
