This specification covers a butadiene-acrylonitrile (NBR) rubber in the form of molded rings, compression seals, o-ring cord, and molded-in-place gaskets for aeronautical and aerospace applications.
These products have been used typically as sealing rings in contact with diester synthetic lubricants in service up 275 °F (135 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications. These products may not be suitable for use in high temperature stabilized, "HTS", engine oils (those conforming to MIL-PRF-23699 Class HTS, MIL-PRF-7808 Grade 4 and AS5780 Class HPC). The cross-section of such rings is usually not over 0.275 inch (6.98 mm) in diameter or thickness.
