Acrylonitrile-Butadiene, Nitrile (NBR)

Good mechanical properties: high tensile strength, compression set resistance, and abrasion resistance.

Carboxylated Nitrile (XNBR)

Enhanced tear and abrasion resistance compared to Nitrile (NBR), good water, oil, and fuel resistance.

Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR, HSN)

Excellent mechanical properties and good chemical resistance.

Ethylene Propylene (EP, EPDM, EPR, EPM)

Excellent ozone resistance and good heat, ageing, compression set and abrasion resistance.

Fluorocarbon (FKM)

Excellent high temperatures resistance and exceptional chemical resistance also has low gas permeability and resistance to ozone, weathering, and aging.

Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM)

Extreme high temperature capabilities with superior chemical resistance approach that of PTFE.

Silicone Rubber (Q, MQ, VMQ, PVMQ)

Good ozone and weather resistance and good insulating and physiologically neutral properties. Not recommended for dynamic sealing, unless used as an energizer, due to poor tear strength and low wear resistance.

Tetrafluoroethylene-Propylene (FEPM, FE/P, TFE)

High temperature and chemical resistance.
