Nitrile rubbers are used for manufacturing a wide range of technical products that require good resistance to oils, fuels and greases.
Due to their non-staining antioxidant content, these rubbers may be used to manufacture light- or brightly-coloured products. They are also suitable for use in food contact or potable water applications.
Synthos nitrile (acrylonitrile butadiene) rubbers are produced by low-temperature emulsion polymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile and are sold under the KER® brand. Three grades are available with differing bound acrylonitrile content.
