Nitrile Moulding

WHEN SHOULD NITRILE BE USED?

Nitrile’s main benefit is that it is resistant to oil and fuel making it the number one choice for o-ring seals used in engines across all types of industries from construction, to rail and public transport, We’ve even had first hand experience in the manufacture of parts for Indycar race cars.

Nitrile is also food approved (FDA Approved) and is used extensively across the dairy farming industry and in food processing plants in production lines. It is also used in the confectionery industry for mould making where resistance to extreme temperature is not a requirement (lollipop moulds for example) as Nitrile is a much more cost effective alternative to Silicone.

WHY NITRILE?

Nitrile Rubber (NBR – acrylonitrile butadiene copolymer) has good mechanical properties when compared with other elastomers, together with high wear resistance. Nitrile-based compounds can exhibit excellent compression set properties, and has very good tear and abrasion resistance. Nitrile is often used where a seal is required for contact with oil at low temperature.

WHY USE SRM FOR NITRILE MOULDING

Here at SRM we’ve been working with Nitrile for over 38 years and have an extensive knowledge of its properties and applications. We have Lab facilities where we have developed our own compound for optimum performance every time.

We hold a broad range of stock nitrile compounds on site and can produce the mould tooling in house, whether it be injection, transfer or compression tooling, and allows us to mould the complete volume spectrum, from small quantity to mass production.
