Buna-N rubber has many applications, such as o-rings, oil seals, hoses, cable jacketing, disposable non-latex gloves, and, most important to us: gaskets. The substance contains several properties, making it an excellent choice for manhole covers. For example, Buna-N rubber’s high resistance to oil, water, and grease creates the seal between manhole covers and outside conditions. Additionally, the synthetic rubber’s marvelous strength results in abrasion and tear resistance and rebound under heavy compression. It’s no wonder why Buna-N rubber gaskets are the most widely used.
