Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), widely referred to also as Buna-N, is typically made from hydrocarbons.. It is a type of synthetic rubber, which is a butadiene and acrylonitrile copolymer. For this, for case of fast curing of NBR, the healing process is simple. Rapid curing of nitrile butadiene rubber also has the potential to tolerate a wide range of temperatures from -40 ° C to 107 ° C, making it ideal for use in aeronautics. Because its physical and chemical properties differ depending on the concentration of nitrile in the material, this type of synthetic rubber is unusual in being typically oil, fuel and other chemicals resistant.

A main factor that greatly impacts the worldwide demand for fast curing nitrile butadiene rubber is that the growth of the worldwide marketplace for automobiles. Automobiles may be a major end-use segment of the fast-curing rubber industry for nitrile butadiene. For the manufacture of O-rings, V belts, seals, fuel hoses, and other items employed in the automotive industry, the fast curing nitrile butadiene rubber is employed.
