About Styrene Butadiene Latex. Styrene Butadiene Latex (a.k.a. SB Latex) is a synthetic polymer made of monomers 1,3-butadiene and styrene. Styrene Butadiene 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). Styrene-Butadiene Latex has a greater crosslink density as SBR, and this gives it more toughness and strength.
Chemical Formula. (C8H8)x(C4H6)y
Commercial Grades. Grades vary in molecular weight and in styrene content (typically between 23 and 40%)
Uses. Styrene is used mainly in adhesives, latex foam, and paper coatings.
- 1,3-Butadiene + styrene (emulsion polymerization).
Derivatives. Styrene Butadiene Latex is used as raw material in the production of Styrene Butadiene Rubber.
