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.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polyisoprene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
