About Styrene Butadiene Rubber. 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.
Chemical Formula. (C8H8)x(C4H6)y
Commercial Grades. styrene content typically between 23 and 40% (grades can also vary depending on the molecular weight).
Uses. Styrene-Butadiene Rubber is mainly used in: tires manufacturing; as adhesives and flow modifiers for other elastomers; footwear; pharmaceutical and food contact articles; conveyor belts; and chewing gums.
- 1,3-Butadiene + styrene (emulsion polymerization)
- 1,3-Butadiene + styrene (solution polymerization)
