Hydrogenated Nitrile comes from adding hydrogen to the nitrile molecular chain to make it more stable. The addition of hydrogen reduces the number of carbon-carbon double bonds, making it less reactive.
In comparison with NBR, HNBR has better abrasion resistance, tear resistance, high-temperature properties and resistance to chemical attacks. It can be used in ozone applications, R134a refrigerant gas, petroleum oils and fuels, water and team (up to 300° F), silicone oils and greases, vegetable and animal fats and fluids.
Cannot be used in chlorinated hydrocarbons, polar solvents (esters and ketones), and strong acids.
