HNBR: Exploring the Benefits and Applications

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

HNBR (Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) is a specialized elastomer material that offers excellent resistance to heat, ozone, and chemicals. It is widely used in the automotive and oil and gas industries due to its excellent mechanical properties and resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments. HNBR is commonly used to make O-rings, gaskets, custom rubber parts, etc. In this blog, we will take a closer look at HNBR rubber and its various applications.


What is HNBR Rubber?

Custom HNBR Gasket for industrial use


HNBR rubber is a synthetic elastomer material that is created by hydrogenating Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR).


HNBR is formed by subjecting Nitrile rubber to a hydrogenation process. The hydrogenation process increases the saturation of the polymer chain, resulting in a compound that demonstrates increased temperature resistance and better compatibility with ozone, and many fuels & chemicals. HNBR rubber also offers excellent mechanical properties and abrasion resistance. Hydrogenated Nitrile also offers higher strength and reduced degradation at high temperatures compared to conventional Nitrile. These properties make HNBR popular in the oil and gas industry, as well as many applications in the chemical industry. Specific physical and chemical resistances vary by compound formulation.


Common names include: HNBR (Hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber), Hydrogenated Nitrile Trade Names: Therban®, Zetpol®


How Does HNBR Rubber Work?


HNBR rubber offers excellent resistance to high-temperature environments due to its highly saturated polymer chains. The material is also highly resistant to ozone and chemicals, making it a popular choice for use in the automotive and oil and gas industries.

HNBR rubber has good tensile strength, elongation, and compression set, making it an ideal material for manufacturing seals, gaskets, and other components that require excellent mechanical properties and chemical resistance. If you would like to learn more, see our HNBR page.


Applications of HNBR Rubber


HNBR rubber has a broad range of applications across various industries, including:


  1. Automotive Industry: HNBR rubber is widely used in the automotive industry for manufacturing O-rings, seals, gaskets, and other components that require resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments.

  2. Oil and Gas Industry: HNBR rubber is used in the oil and gas industry for manufacturing O-rings, seals, gaskets, and other components that require resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments.

  3. Industrial Industry: HNBR rubber is used in the industrial industry for manufacturing O-rings, seals, gaskets, and other components that require resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments.

  4. Aerospace Industry: HNBR rubber is used in the aerospace industry for manufacturing O-rings, seals, gaskets, and other components that require resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments.


Conclusion


HNBR rubber is a specialized elastomer material that offers excellent resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments. Its wide range of applications makes it a popular choice for use in the automotive, oil and gas, industrial, and aerospace industries. If you require a material that offers excellent resistance to high-temperature and harsh chemical environments for your industrial application, HNBR rubber may be an excellent choice for you.
