Tri-Clamp BUNA-N (Viton) Gasket
Buna-N Tri-Clamp gaskets are the preferred choice of material when using a closed loop, closed column, or open blast extraction with butane or propane as the extraction solvent. Buna-N Gaskets offer a lower temperature rating and have better physical properties than Viton gaskets and the best part is that they are also cheaper than Viton and provide the same chemical resistance to butane and propane.
- Cleaning Buna-N gaskets with isopropyl alcohol is not recommended and will void any claims of defect or damage.
- Lower Temperature Range
- Lower Costs
- Better Compressibility and Springiness
- Excellent Resistance to Butane and Propane
- Better Tear Resistance
- Better Abrasion Resistance

Great quality gaskets. Will purchase again!
For closed loop extractors it is the best and easiest gasket to use. Easy on lip ensures the gasket gets properly seated flush, level and in contact with all points to create a perfect seal. Highly recommended.
Highly recommended for closed loop extractors
