Hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) market projected to reach $22.38 billion by 2027

Worldwide, demand for hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR)s is rising with increasing consumption of HNBR in manufacturing industrial and medical gloves. As a rise in the number of industrial accidents and HNBR gloves are highly recommended in almost all major industrial applications. Thus drive the market for hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber during the forecasted period. Also, HNBR possesses excellent solvent or chemical resistance, along with the superior thermal stability, which makes it the most preferred material in manufacturing medical non-latex gloves. Additionally, HNBR has better ozone resistance, high strength, and better tolerance than NBR in oil drilling applications, it is expected to boost the HNBR market. However, the availability of substitutes such as thermoplastic elastomers might hamper the market growt

Diamine cured HNBR for improved long term compression set on thin sectioned articles

HNBR is rated for continuous use at temperatures from125°C to 150°C, depending on several compounding factors, with the choice of cure system being one of the most critical. While a sulfur cure can provide flex fatigue and high tensile properties, it does not have high temperature stability. Peroxide cured HNBR is the only suitable cure system for long term, 150°C temperature resistance. Peroxide cured HNBR also provides high modulus and low compression set, making it an ideal material for sealing applications. HNBR is the sealing material of choice in many automotive and oil well applications where high mechanical strength is needed, in addition to high temperature and chemical resistance
