NBR and NR compatibility - any binder?

NBR and NR compatibility - any binder?

NBR and NR compatibility - any binder?

Hi all rubber experts

I need an insight on this.

I believe that NBR and NR (supposed to be) not compatible, isn't it?

Is there any way that we can "bind" both rubber? Or any other rubber that can act as the "binder" in between NBR and NR?

We are making a product that use NBR as main compound but to be sandwiched with nylon cord (with NR base). So we need the NBR and NR (nylon cord) to "bind" to each other.

Thank you in advance!

Did you evaluate bonding the NBR and NR/Fabric and got poor results?

I understand polychloroprene has been used as a binder. A NR/NBR blend interlayer may also work. It would be helpful to know the acrylonitrile content of the NBR
