Various oil resistant rubber introduction

In the industrial field, oil-resistant rubber materials are widely used because they can resist the erosion of various petroleum-based and synthetic lubricants and other oils. The following will introduce several common oil-resistant rubber materials.

1.Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR)

Nitrile butadiene rubber is an oil-resistant rubber made of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It has good tolerance to oil and grease, and still maintains good elasticity and stability at lower temperatures. Therefore, nitrile butadiene rubber is widely used in the production of seals, gaskets, pipe fittings and other oil resistant parts.

2. Fluorine Rubber (FKM)

Fluorine rubber is a kind of polymer synthetic rubber, because of the fluorine atoms in its molecular chain, so that it has excellent oil resistance, solvent resistance and high temperature resistance. Fluorine rubber can maintain stable performance in high temperature and highly corrosive oils, so it is widely used in aerospace, petrochemical and automotive industries.

3. Silicone Rubber

Silicone rubber is a kind of polymer synthetic rubber composed of silicon and oxygen atoms alternating main chain. It has excellent oil resistance, oxidation resistance and high temperature resistance, and has good permeability resistance to a variety of oils. Silicone rubber is widely used in parts that require prolonged contact with oil, such as fuel tank seals, oil lines and pump seals.

4. Acrylic Rubber (ACM)

Acrylate rubber is a kind of oil-resistant rubber which is copolymerized by acrylate and a small amount of elastomer. It has good resistance to oil and grease, and can still maintain good elasticity and stability at high temperatures. Acrylic rubber is widely used in the production of seals and gaskets in high temperature and corrosive oil environments.

Step 5 Summarize

Nitrile rubber, fluorine rubber, silicone rubber and acrylic rubber are common oil-resistant rubber materials. They each have unique chemical structure and physical properties, so that they can maintain good performance under different oil environment and temperature conditions. Understanding and applying these oil-resistant rubber materials is of great significance for improving the reliability and prolonging the service life of industrial equipment. With the continuous progress of technology and the growth of application demand, more new oil-resistant rubber materials will emerge in the future, providing strong support for the sustainable development of various industries.
