Carboxylated Nitrile (XNBR)
Carboxylated Nitrile compounds are made when additions of carboxylated acid groups are introduced to the Nitrile polymer backbone. The result of carboxylating the Nitrile is improved abrasion resistance, tear resistance, and tensile strength. Like all elastomer materials, as we greatly improve one property, we tend to lose value in another area. With Carboxylated Nitrile, lost benefits are less compression set, resilience, and ozone resistance.
Carboxylated Nitrile is used commonly in paper and plastic converting applications and in other processes where outstanding abrasion resistance is required.
