HNBR was analyzed following low temperature storage (between 0 °C and −50 °C) in order to measure the effects of cold crystallization during exposure close to, and below, the glass transition temperature (Tg). Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DM...

Elastic recovery after compression or compression set is one of the key indicators of elastomer performance in sealing applications, such as O-rings in flange joints. In this work, findings of a study of the compression set property of a hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) at temperatures a...

Rubber compounds for pressure sealing application typically have inferior dimensional stability with temperature fluctuations compared with their steel counterparts. This effect may result in seal leakage failures when subjected to decreases in temperature. Composites of hydrogenated nitrile butadie...

The effect of ageing in a sweet oil environment on the tensile properties, apparent crosslink density, CO2 diffusion and Shore hardness of a typical carbon black reinforced hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) is presented. Different ageing conditions yielded materials with different propert...

A typical carbon black reinforced hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) was exposed to a mix of hydrocarbons (toluene, heptane and cyclohexane) at elevated temperatures and pressure in order to chemically age the material. The effect of this exposure on the mechanical properties is reported; ...
