Nitrile rubber (NBR) (Buna N)is a general purpose material resistant to a large variety of oils and greases. It is the workhorse of oil sealing owing to cost/performance compromise. Different nitrile compounds are available for fuels and for industrial fluids. Nitrile rubber is generally serviceable between -40°C and 105°C; it can withstand 120°C intermittently. It is not recommended for glycol-based brake fluids and EP-type lubricants.
