What is styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR)?

Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) is a general-purpose synthetic rubber and sometimes used as a substitute for natural rubber. It can be produced by free-radical solution polymerization or by emulsion polymerization either warm at 30 to 60°C (hot rubber) or cold at temperatures near 0°C (cold rubber). It has good abrasion resistance and aging stability when protected by additives.

Uses of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR)

Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) is mainly used in the manufacture of tyres/tyre products, conveyor belts, gaskets, hoses, floor tiles, wire and cable insulation, footwear, and adhesives.
