Natural (NR). The NR rubber offers good resistance to inorganic acids, ammonia, weak acids and alkali; low resistance to oil, solvents and chemical compounds.

Neoprene (CR). CR rubber is also known by its commercial name Neoprene (trademark of Du Pont). It has excellent resistance to oils, ozone, sunlight and aging. Low permeability to gases. Recommended for use with gasoline and non-aromatic solvents.

Ethylene-Propylene (EPDM). EPDM rubber has good resistance to ozone, steam, strong acids and alkali.

Silicone (SI). Silicone rubber offers excellent resistance to the aging process, being unaffected by sunlight or ozone. For that reason it is often used in hot air.

Red (SBR). SBR rubber, (STYRENE-BUTADIENE - SBR) commonly called "synthetic rubber" was developed as an alternative to the natural rubber. Recommended for service in cold and hot water, air, steam and some weak acids.

Nitrile (NBR), Black or White. NBR rubber is also know as Buna-N. It offers good resistance to oils, solvents, aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons and gasoline.

Hypalon. Hypalon®, similar to Neoprene rubber, offers excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight, chemical products and good resistance to oils.

Fluoroelastomer (CFM, FVSI, FPM, FKM). It is also known by its commercial name Viton (trademark of Du Pont). It offers excellent resistance to strong acids, oils, gasoline, chlorate solvents and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons.
