SBR Rubber gaskets

Post by Joep Stuyfzand » Fri Dec 07, 2018 8:29 pm

I recently bought some rubber plates to cut gaskets from for my demp fusor. I was under the impression that these were Nitrile (buna-n) but they apparently are buna-s. Aka SBR rubber. I unfortunately can't buy nitrile in small amount, only SBR. So this made me wonder: can I use SBR for vacuun work as well? I could not find figures on it's vapor pressure only that it does not let gasses through. Thanks in advance!
