Hydrogenated carboxylated nitrile butadiene robber (HXNBR) is formed by polymerizing a conjugated diene such as 1,3-butadiene, a nitrile such as acrylonitrile or methacrylonitrile and an unsaturated carboxylic acid such as acrylic or methacrylic acid to produce a polymer with a C=C backbone and a random or statistical monomer distribution.
