SBR Latex
Styrene Butadiene Rubber (a.k.a. SBR, SBR Latex) is a synthetic polymer made of monomers 1,3-butadiene and styrene. In the copolymer generated, the butadiene molecule may assume three different forms, according to the way it is connected to the styrene component: (1) Cis 1,4-Butadiene; (2) Trans 1,4-Butadiene; and (3) Vinyl Butadiene. It represents by far the biggest market share between synthetic elastomers produced worldwide. This elastomer offers excellent abrasion resistance, excellent water resistance, good physical properties and easy processing. These properties vary depending on the molecular weight and styrene to butadiene ratio. There's two main Styrene-Butadiene polymer types: Styrene-Butadiene Latex and Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR). SBR has a higher butadiene content than Latex and this makes it more elastic-like.
The uses and applications of Styrene Butadiene Rubber may vary according to its specification. Generically, SBR grades are measured by their styrene content – typically between 23 and 40% (grades can also vary depending on the molecular weight).

Updated Reports Examining Styrene Butadiene Latex Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Styrene Butadiene Latex manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Styrene Butadiene Latex process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Styrene Butadiene Latex production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber Production

This report presents the economics of SBR production starting from butadiene and styrene. The analysis encompasses a plant located in the United States, employing a typical cold emulsion process for generating a non-oil extended, non-staining grade of emulsion SBR (similar to 1502). In this process, an emulsion comprising water, styrene and butadiene is polymerized into a latex, which is then coagulated to form the SBR.
