About Polyisoprene. 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.

Polyisoprene Handling. Polyisoprene's recommended storage is in lined metal can, plastic pail, or polyliner drums. The polymer should also be stored in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area, away from strong oxidizing materials.

Polyisoprene Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Polyisoprene are listed below.

  • Isoprene (Ziegler polymerisation)

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.
