Description: Style AG55NBRFDA is a 55 durometer FDA grade nitrile gasketing material used primarily in both food and pharmaceutical environments. Style AG55NBRFDA exhibits good abrasion resistance and handles both oily and greasy food products. 55 durometer FDA grade nitrile is a non-toxic, non-marking, and non-allergenic material, which has an operating temperature of -30°F to +220°F. 55 durometer FDA grade nitrile is formulated with FDA approved ingredients per 21 CFR 177.2600 and meets the ASTM D 2000 M1BG 607 Z1 Z2 Z3 specification.
Atlantic Gasket’s FDA grade nitrile is available in a wide range of durometers, ranging from as soft as 45 Durometer (AG45NBRFDA) to as hard as 80 Durometer (AG80NBRFDA) with standard durometers in between. Style AG55NBRFDA is available in the color white and can be manufactured in a wide range of standard thicknesses, ranging from as thin a 1/32" to as thick as 1/2", with custom thicknesses available upon request. 55 durometer FDA grade nitrile has a smooth finish and can be converted into rolls ranging from as narrow as 1/4 wide up to 48" in width. Additional widths are available upon request. Send in a drawing, and let Atlantic Gasket die-cut or waterjet 50 durometer FDA grade nitrile to meet both prototype and production requirements.
