Nitrile rubber coated metal products have compression set and torque retention sealing characteristics. Automotive applications include engine intake manifolds, head and other engine gaskets, transmissions, braking system, air-conditioning cylinder head and valve plate. Other applications include motorcycle, small engine, heavy duty diesel, oil drilling and industrial equipment.
Missouri Laminates, Inc produces heavy duty sealing materials consisting of a metal core with a tough, resilient, Nitrile rubber coating that is a thermosetting material that will not soften at elevated temperatures. The Nitrile coating is a film that permits the product to be used in applications where resistance to scratching, scuffing or abrasion from dissimilar metals is a problem. It is also resistant to diesel fuel, oil, gasoline, gassohol, water, ethylene glycol and transmission fluid.
