Buna-N o-rings also referred to as NBR o-rings and Nitrile o-rings are the most widely used o-ring material in the word because of low cost, good mechanical performance with resistance to water, most basic oils, lubricants and some fuels, many pneumatic, hydraulic systems, and the default choice for basic applications. Buna-N o-rings are not recommended for exposure to sunlight, UV light, ozone and general outdoor weathering or hash chemicals, acids, keytones and many others.
The most commonly used O-Ring material due to it's strength and durability.They are suitable for a broad range of fluids including oils, water, and mild chemicals. Recommended for use with crude oil, gasoline, propane, petroleum oils and water.
Choose these O-rings for their adherence to strict military standards for material and construction. Made of Buna-N, they are resilient and offer resistance to tearing, motor oil, ammonia, ethylene glycol, isopropyl alcohol, and mineral oil. These O-rings have a round profile and are suitable for a wide range of static and dynamic sealing applications. All are sized to the SAE standard AS568.
