Further Comments
This is the highest volume general purpose synthetic rubber. It is very weak unless reinforcing fillers are incorporated. With suitable fillers, it is a strong rubber, although not approaching natural rubber or polychloroprene. Otherwise, it has similar chemical and physical properties to natural rubber, with generally better abrasion resistance but poorer fatigue resistance.

Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR)

Styrene Butadiene Rubber is made from cold polymerization of styrene and butadiene monomers through low temperature emulsification polymerization and has similar characteristics to natural rubber. It is a general purpose rubber and produced in the largest volume of any synthetic rubber. It has good tensile stregth and excellent abrasion resistance but poor tear strength and fatigue resistance.

The SBR 1500 series is light coloured and non staining. The 1700 series is extended with the addition of highly aromatic oil and is a darker colour.
