Basic characteristics of rubber materials:
1. The elastic modulus of rubber with high elasticity is small, generally 1-9.8Mpa. It has large elongation and elongation, can reach up to 100%, still exhibits recoverable characteristics, and can maintain elasticity over a wide temperature range (-50-+150 °C).
2. The viscoelastic rubber is a viscoelastic body. Due to the interaction between the macromolecules, the rubber is subjected to an external force, and the deformation is affected by conditions such as time and temperature, and there is obvious stress relaxation and creep phenomenon. Hysteresis loss occurs under periodic action such as vibration or alternating stress.
3, with cushioning damping rubber has a mitigating effect on the transmission of sound and vibration, can use this feature to prevent noise and vibration.
4. Electrically insulating rubber is an electrically insulating material like plastic. For example, natural rubber and butyl rubber and volume resistance can reach 10
5. Temperature-dependent polymer materials are generally affected by temperature. When the rubber is at a low temperature, it becomes hard and brittle in the glass state, and at high temperatures, it softens, melts, thermally oxidizes, thermally decomposes and burns.
6, with aging phenomenon like metal corrosion, wood decay, rock weathering, rubber will also age due to changes in environmental conditions, so that performance is deteriorated, service life is shortened.
7. The vulcanized rubber must be added with sulfur or other substances that can vulcanize (or crosslink) the rubber to crosslink the rubber macromolecule into a spatial network structure to obtain a rubber product with useful value, but the thermoplastic rubber does not need to be vulcanized. .

Introduction of nitrile rubber properties
Referred to as NBR. A synthetic rubber prepared by copolymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile.

The content of acrylonitrile (%) in the nitrile rubber is five kinds such as 42 to 46, 36 to 41, 31 to 35, 25 to 30, and 18 to 24. The more acrylonitrile content, the better the oil resistance, but the cold resistance is correspondingly reduced. It can be used for a long time in air at 120 ° C or in oil at 150 ° C. In addition, it has good water resistance, air tightness and excellent bonding properties. Widely used in the manufacture of various oil-resistant rubber products, a variety of oil-resistant gaskets, gaskets, casings, flexible packaging, soft rubber hoses, printing and dyeing rubber rollers, cable rubber materials, etc., in the automotive, aviation, petroleum, copying and other industries become essential Elastic material. Nitrile rubber was first industrialized in Germany in 1935.
