Technology Profile: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Latex Production

By Intratec Solutions |

This column is based on “Acrylonitrile Butadiene Latex Production – Cost Analysis,” a report published by Intratec. It can be found at: www.intratec.us/analysis/nitrile-rubber-production-cost. Nitrile rubber (also known as NBR, acrylonitrile butadiene rubber, acrylonitrile butadiene latex, Buna-N) is a synthetic polymer made of monomers 1,3-butadiene and acrylonitrile. This rubber is known for its resistance to chemicals, oils and fuels. NBR is produced with a wide range of molecular weights and monomer ratios, so basic polymer properties can vary greatly. NBR is primarily used in applications where good oil resistance is required, such as rubber seals and O-rings, hose and belting stock and blowout preventers or packers (in oil drilling). NBR is also used in molding miscella-neous parts, rubber latex products, sponge applications, gaskets, pump stators, safety gloves and footwear. Additionally, NBR is used in modifying plastics, adhesives, cements, sealants, coatings and friction materials.   Figure 1.
