      Common Sheet Packing Polymers

      Butyl (IIR / isobutyl-isoprene):
        Excellent weathering and dialectic
        properties with low air permeability.
        Good physical properties. Poor
        resistance to petroleum-based fluids.
        TEMP: -30°F to +212°F>
      Nitrile (NBR / Buna-N / butadiene-
        acrylonitrile):
      Excellent resistance
        to petroleum-based fluids. Good
        physical properties.
        TEMP: -40°F to +200°Fl
      EPDM (ethylene-propylene diene):
        Excellent ozone, chemical, heat and aging
        resistance. Poor resistance to petroleum-
        based fluids.
        TEMP: -40°F to +250°F
      Silicone (SI / Dimethyl-
        Polysiloxame):
      Excellent high and
        low temperature properties, fair
        physical properties.
        TEMP: -80°F to +500°F
      Hypalon® (CSM / chloro-sulfinated
        polyethylene):
      Excellent ozone,
        weathering, and acid resistance. Good
        abrasion and heat resistance. Fair
        resistance to petroleum-based fluids.
        TEMP: -20°F to +170°F
      SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber):
        Excellent abrasion resistance and
        low temperature properties.
        TEMP: -20°F to +180°F
      Natural Rubber (NR / Gum Rubber):
        Excellent physical properties, including
        abrasion and resistance. Good flexibility
        at low temperature. Poor resistance to
        petroleum-based fluids.
        TEMP: -20°F to 180°F
      Urethane (polyurethane): Good
        aging and excellent abrasion, tear
        and solvent resistance. Poor high
        temperature properties.
        TEMP: -58°F to +180°F
      Neoprene (CR / polychloroprene):
        Good weather resistance and good
        inherent flame resistance. Moderate
        resistance to petroleum-based fluids.
        Good physical properties.
        TEMP: -20°F to 190°F
      Viton® (FPM / hexafluoro-
        propylene vinylidene fluoride):

        and Excellent oil- air- resistance at
        both low and high temperatures.
        Very good chemical resistance.
        TEMP: -20°F to +450°F
