ACM – Polyacrylic Rubber

The key properties of Polyacrylic (ACM) are its resistance to hot hydraulic oil and oxidation.

  • It is also resistant to ozone and weathering and in these respects it is much superior to Nitrile Rubber.
  • Water resistance is poor, as is its resistance to acids and alkalis. Low temperature applications are limited to -10°C.
  • Polyacrylic has very low resilience below 70°C and has found use in vibration damping.
  • Typical applications include automotive transmissions components requiring resistance to hot oil or fuel.
  • Typical working temperature range: -10°C to 150°C
