Nitrile rubber gaskets are cut from a synthetic material that provides excellent resistance to most petroleum based fluids, greases and oils. They offer good resistance to abrasion, moderate tensile strength and adequate mechanical properties. Nitrile gaskets are primarily used in sealing applications in the automotive, aeronautical, petrochemical and oil industries. Although nitrile is suitable for use with petrochemicals, it provides poor resistance to ozone and weathering and is not suitable for use with ketones.
PAR Group can supply nitrile rubber gaskets in a variety of grades that provide enhanced material characteristics or conform to British standards. These include option such as BS 2751, blue food quality, white food quality and blue metal detectable grades.
By utilising advanced in-house CNC machining technology we are able to cut to precise tolerances and can fulfil single unit or high quantity requirements. We can manufacture dovetail, picture frame or standard flange gaskets and have the ability to work to bespoke dimensional drawings if required. For information on how to accurately measure your gasket, please view our step by step guide on 'How to Measure a Gasket'.
