Nitrile rubber is a polymer-based synthetic rubber that displays a high resistance to hydrocarbons, acids and oil, among other chemicals. Nitrile, otherwise known as Buna-N or NBR, is widely used across many branches of industry to make fuel and oil handling equipment, such as hoses, seals and self-sealing fuel tanks in cases where ordinary organic rubber would fail. Nitrile rubber can withstand temperatures ranging from -40c to +108c, and it is even used in aeronautical and nuclear applications.
The four-lobed design of quad rings (X-Rings) provides twice the sealing surface in comparison to a standard O-Ring. The double-seal action requires less compression to maintain an effective seal. This reduced compression results in less friction, longer seal life and a lower risk of twisting
