Butadiene Acrylonitrile Rubber is normally abbreviated to NBR, but is more commonly known as Nitrile and is a synthetic Polymer. Rubber Sheeting described as Nitrile will be a blend of polymers including a percentage of Butadiene Acrylonitrile Rubber. Specification Grades will contain higher levels of Butadiene Acrylonitrile Rubber than commercial grades. Typically used in applications where resistance to oils and chemicals are required.
