HNBR O-Rings

All HNBR O-rings are here available

What is an HNBR O-ring?

HNBR (hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber) is obtained by fully or partially hydrogenating the double bonds in nitrile butadiene rubber with hydrogen to single bonds. In comparison with NBR O-rings, HNBR O rings have better properties in terms of oil resistance, temperature resistance, and strength. It is more resistant to ozone and aggressive substances and can be used from -40 °C to +165 °C (with peaks up to +190 °C).

The advantages of O-rings HNBR:

  • Resistant to hydraulic fluids based on mineral oil
  • Resistant to animal and vegetable fats
  • Resistant to diesel, ozone, acid gas, diluted acids, and bases
  • Resistant to new organic oils (organic oils)
  • Suitable for high dynamic loads and has good wear resistance
  • Mechanically strong
  • Good compression set / good hot crack / good ozone and aging resistance
  • Resistant to high-energy radioactive radiation
  • Good resistance to hot water and steam
  • Temperature resistant to long-term +150 °C with higher peaks
  • Good resistance to various media
  • Excellent heat and oxidation resistance
  • Applicable in water and steam
  • Temperature range from -40 °C to +150 °C
  • Excellent resistance to liquids from motor vehicles (engine oil, coolant, fuel, etc.)

The disadvantages of HNBR Orings:

  • Significantly more expensive
  • Not resistant to chlorinated hydrocarbons
  • Not resistant to polar solvents (ketones, eaters and esters)
  • Not resistant to strong acids


  • Automotive
