SYNTHETIC RUBBER

SSBR

Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber

SSBR is one of the most manufactured synthetic rubber in the world. For use in high-performance tires, S-SBR products provide an excellent balance between wet grip, low rolling resistance, and abrasion resistance in silica and carbon black compounds. SSBR is the first choice for the production of tire compounds, particularly for summer and winter tire treads.

Solution Styrene Butadinene Rubber is sometimes blended with NR, BR or ESBR to improve the properties of the final product. The materials are also used for the manufacture of high-quality industrial rubber goods.

Oil Extended and Non Oil types of SSBR in the shapes of Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grades can be supplied.

ESBR

Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber

 ESBR is the most manufactured synthetic rubber in the world. It`s shape is irregular because of the fact that there is no crystallization. Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber is the most widely used rubber in the world, representing about % 40 of the synthetic rubber market which is a result of its excellent balance of properties and cost performance.

ESBR has good mechanical properties, abrasion and tear resistance, being largely used in tire, retread, footwear soles, hoses, tubes, cables, conveyor belts and a great variety of moulded, calendered and extruded rubber goods.

Oil Extended and Non Oil types of ESBR in the shapes of Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grades can be supplied. Near to Prime and Off Grade materials have more different properties than thier prime grade`s about usually mooney viscosity but the materials have special techinical data sheets. The material`s preferability reason is cheaper than their prime grade`s.

BR

Butadiene Rubber

Polybutadiene Rubber which is a polymerized by butadiene is the most elastic rubber type. Major application for BR include tyre treads, tyre carcass and sidewalls, under-treads, cycle tyres, conveyor belts, sportswear, golf balls, automotive components, conveyor belts and shoe heels and soles. BR is also well suited for the production of flexible rollers and mechanical goods due to its superior elasticity, resilience and abrasion properties.

High CIS, Medium CIS and Low CIS types of BR in the shapes of Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grades can be supplied.

Main Applications:

  • Conveyor Belts
  • Technical Rubber Products
  • Tires
  • Golf Balls
  • V-Belts
  • Footwear
  • Caterpillar Tread Blocks

EP(D)M

Ethylene Propylene Diene Rubber

EPDM denotes a terpolymer based on three monomers: ethylene, propylene and a non-conjugated diene; EPDM grades have a residual unsaturation in the side chains and can therefore be cured with sulfur and accelerators.

EPM represents a copolymer from ethylene and propylene monomers; EPM is entirely saturated and therefore requires vulcanization by radiation or products that release free radicals, such as organic peroxides.

Its heat resistance is distinctly better than that of Natural Rubber, SBR and Butadiene Rubber. The molecules of both EPM and EPDM have a completely saturated hydrocarbon backbone, through which excellent ozone resistance and very good resistance to heat and oxidation are achieved.

Oil Extended and Non Oil types of EP(D)M in the shapes of Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grades can be supplied.

NBR

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber which is one of the Synthetic Rubbers is manufactured by emulsion-polymerizing acrylonitrile and butadiene in low temperatures. Mainly NBR`s usage areas are seal and gasket manufacturing, fuel and hydraulic hose manufacturing, conveyor belt manufacturing, worker boat`s manufacturing, rubber rollers manufacturing and shoe soles manufacturing etc.
  The reasons for preference are;

  – Very good resistance to mineral oils, greases and fuels,

  – Good resistance to aging temperature resistance, 
  – High resistance to wear and abrasion,
  – Low permeability to gases,
  – Good dynamic fatigue resistance,
  – Reasonable cost level,

  – Good ozone resistance and conventional molding techniques

   Bale and powder packing types of NBR in the shapes of Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grades can be supplied. 

IR

Polyisoprene Rubber

Polyisoprene (IR) is designed to be similar to natural rubber in structure and properties. Although it still demonstrates lower green strength, slower cure rates, lower hot tear, and lower aged properties than its natural counterpart, synthetic polyisoprene exceeds the natural types in consistency of product, cure rate, processing, and purity. In addition, it is superior in mixing, extrusion, molding and calendering processes.

They combine the key qualities of natural rubber such as good mechanical properties and hysteresis with superior features such as high purity, excellent clarity, good flow, low gel content, no nitrosamines, and no natural rubber proteins.

Polyisoprene rubbers (IR) are high molecular weight, anionically polymerized polyisoprene that can be processed in the same way as a natural rubber, including vulcanization.

Prime, Near to Prime and Off Grade qualities of Polyisoprene Rubber can be supplied.
