Nitrile Rubber (NBR)
Nitrile rubber (NBR), also called Nitrile-butadiene rubber is mainly used in applications that require oil resistance, such as manufacturing of fuel hoses, gaskets, rollers, roller printers and textiles where it is applied to woven and non-woven material to enhance the finish and provide waterproofing.
⤷Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR)
SBR offers stability as a synthetic rubber and resistance to abrasion. It is used in a wide variety of products, from automobile tires to children’s toys, shoe soles and even chewing gum.
Polybutadiene or PBR has a high resistance to wear and tear and is used especially in the manufacture of tires, golf balls, elastic objects and also tocoat electronic assemblies due to its electrical resistance. It is also used as an additive to improve the mechanical strength of plastics such as polystyrene and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS. Polybutadiene rubber accounts for about a quarter of the total global consumption of synthetic rubbers.
