Blue NBR Rubber Sheeting - Food Quality

Blue NBR Rubber Sheeting - Food Quality

Blue food quality Nitrile rubber sheeting is an FDA approved material and has good resistance to oils and grease. This makes it popular for a wide range of applications in the food and pharmaceutial industries. Also available in white food quality.

Nitrile Rubber sheet has excellent resistance to petroleum, mineral and vegetable oils. It has resistance to various chemicals. Has excellent resistance to high and low temperatures, can work at temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees centigrade.

This blue sheet is FDA approved making it suitable for use where direct contact with food stuffs is required. Suitable for 'cleaning in place'. The component parts used and maximum levels in compound mixtures are in accordance with FDA [Food & Drug Administration – Department of Health and Human Services] part 177 – indirect food additives section 177.2600 – rubber articles for repeated use.

Blue food quality nitrile rubber gaskets are manufactured from an FDA approved material. Nitrile rubber has good resistance to resistant to oils and grease.

An alternative to black colored elastomers, blue nitrile shares all the great physical and chemical properties of normal nitrile material except for its color. It is an excellent oil-resistant rubber that can endure in the presence of various oils and greases.

Also known as Buna-N rubber, this white version is usually chosen for its aesthetic value and non-marking characteristic. We recognize the fact that some applications may require a blue colored component for the sake of appearance, and at other times for necessity. Whatever the reason, we bring to the market white colored nitrile rubber that is available for custom fabrication.

Non-Marking, Professional Aesthetic:

While other rubbers often come in a standard black, we offer a blue colored alternative. Blue nitrile is meant to give an application a sleek, modern, and professional appearance while functioning the way a proper nitrile elastomer is supposed to. Even more importantly, a white elastomer is a non-marking material that will not leave any marks or stains on the objects it comes into contact with. The blue colored nitrile is suitable for use in cosmetics, grocery stores, and medical applications where blue is better suited for aesthetics than black.

Blue Oil-Resistant Rubber:

Nitrile, or Buna-N rubber as it was originally known, was developed to be an oil-resistant alternative to natural rubber back in the years after World War I. Nitrile material is still used today whenever good oil and grease resistance is needed. Blue nitrile can resist organic and synthetic oils. While other types of elastomers can degrade when exposed to oils and greases, nitrile rubber can keep its form and integrity, making sure that it does its part to keep your application functioning.

Custom Fabrication:

This blue nitrile rubber is available for custom specified fabrication. It comes in thickness gauges from 1 mm the way up to 10 mm. You can also specify to us the specific length you require from your oil-resistant rubber sheet. A customized sheet of white nitrile is great for general gasketing and sealing applications.

More Benefits:

  • Also available in white and black
  • Excellent resistant to some oils and chemicals
  • Can operate in temperatures between -20° C and 80° C
  • Blend of nitrile, neoprene, and styrene butadiene rubbers
