Synthetic Rubber
Polyisoprene (a.k.a. IR, Synthetic Rubber) is a thermoplastic elastomer, and the main component of natural rubber. It is formed by polymerization of isoprene in the presence of Ziegler-Natta catalyst. Synthetic Polyisoprene and natural rubber have the same type of applications, being used mainly in tires, belts, gaskets, hoses, foam rubber, molded and mechanical goods, bottle nipples, gloves, caulking, sealants, etc.
The uses and applications of Polyisoprene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyisoprene are United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade; and food (FDA) grade.

Polyisoprene Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Polyisoprene Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Polyisoprene manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Polyisoprene process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Polyisoprene production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Polyisoprene Production from Isoprene

This report presents the economics of Polyisoprene production from isoprene in the United States, via a typical solution polymerization process. The Ziegler/Natta catalyst system used in the process yields predominantly cis-1,4 units.

Details: 25 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Polyisoprene E11A target a 25 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polyisoprene Production from Glucose

This report presents the economics of Polyisoprene production starting from glucose, based on a plant located in the United States. The process comprehends the fermentation of 70 wt% glucose-water syrup into isoprene, followed by solution polymerization step for converting isoprene to Polyisoprene.

Details: 50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Polyisoprene E21A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polyisoprene Production from Raw Sugar

This report presents the economics of Polyisoprene production from starting from raw sugar, based on a plant located in Germany. The process comprehends the hydrolysis of sucrose, the fermentation of the obtained invert sugars into isoprene and a typical solution polymerization process for converting isoprene to Polyisoprene.

Details: 50 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

Polyisoprene Uses. The uses and applications of Polyisoprene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyisoprene are United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade; and food (FDA) grade.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
