RESISTANCE OF NBR-BASED FUEL HOSE TUBE TO FUEL-ALCOHOL BLENDS
The recent history of nitrile rubber (NBR) fuel hose tubes is reviewed, with special emphasis on retention of physical properties after exposure to various test media, including fuel-alcohol blends. Also studied was the problem of permeability. It was found that one route to dramatically lowering permeabilities is the application of a thin veneer of nylon to an NBR base.
