  author={D. A. Seil and Fred Richard Wolf},
Nitrile-butadiene and polyacrylic elastomers fall into the class of special-purpose, oil-resistant rubbers. Nitrile elastomers offer a broad balance of low temperature, oil, fuel and solvent resistance as related to acrylonitrile content. These characteristics, combined with their good abrasion and water-resistant qualities, make them suitable for use in a wide variety of applications with heat-resistant requirements to 149°C (300°F).
