The reducer oil seal is used to seal the liquid medium inside, while the lip oil seal can also prevent the dust from entering outside. Forever Seals can provide many kinds of oil seals with NBR and FKM materials.
NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber)
Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the general term for acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer. The ACN content can vary between 18% and 50%. While the acrylonitrile content is important, the resistance to oil and fuel is more so. Conversely, the elasticity and compression set are not as good. The NBR has good mechanical properties and good wear resistance. However, its resistance to atmospheric agents and the ozone is relatively low.
FKM (fluorinated rubber)
Depending on their structure and fluorine content, the chemical resistance and resistance to the cold in fluororubbers can vary. This FKM-based rubber is very often used for high-temperature hydraulics and pneumatics, for industrial valves, injection/fuel systems, motor seals and high-vacuum systems.
