Fuel grade black Nitrile/PVC rubber strip at 60/65° Shore A hardness. This compound is suitable for use in instances such as gaskets and seals where oil based products are present, fuel resistance is required or for general purpose usage.
Nitrile rubber strip is 5 metres in length.
Nitrile/PVC fuel grade 65° Shore A refers to a specific type of rubber compound used in the manufacturing of rubber products, particularly those designed for fuel-related applications. Let's break down what each component of this designation means:
Nitrile (NBR): Nitrile rubber, also known as NBR, is a synthetic rubber copolymer of acrylonitrile (ACN) and butadiene. It is valued for its excellent resistance to oils, fuels, greases, and chemicals, making it a popular choice for applications where exposure to petroleum-based fluids is common. Nitrile rubber is often used in fuel hoses, seals, gaskets, O-rings, and other components in automotive, aerospace, marine, and industrial systems.
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): PVC is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer widely used in various applications due to its versatility, durability, and cost-effectiveness. In the context of rubber compounds, PVC may be blended with other elastomers like Nitrile to impart specific properties. In this case, PVC is likely included to enhance the material's resistance to certain fuels and fluids, as well as to provide additional stability and flexibility.
Fuel Grade: The designation "fuel grade" indicates that this rubber compound is specifically formulated and tested for compatibility with fuels and hydrocarbons, such as gasoline, diesel, and other petroleum-based fluids. It means that the material has been engineered to withstand exposure to these substances without significant degradation or loss of performance over time.
65° Shore A: Shore hardness is a measure of the material's resistance to indentation or penetration by a standardized durometer. The Shore A scale is commonly used for softer materials like rubbers. A value of 65° Shore A indicates a relatively soft rubber compound, which may offer good flexibility and conformability, making it suitable for applications where sealing effectiveness is important, such as in fuel hoses and gaskets.
