Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market for Hose, Cable & Belting, Medical & Industrial Gloves, Adhesives & Sealants, O-Rings & Seals, Molded & Extruded Products and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Segment, Trends and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”

Nitrile rubber, also known as Buna-N or NBR, is a synthetic rubber copolymer of acrylonitrile and butadiene monomers. It is also known as the workhorse of the automotive and industrial rubber products industries. Higher nitrile content in a polymer increases the resistance to oil, however; the flexibility of the material reduces. In order to reduce the chemical reactivity of the polymer backbone, some NBR elastomers are hydrogenated which in turn improves heat resistance. NBR finds widespread application in fuel hoses, rollers, gaskets, and other products which require oil resistance.
