Styrene-butadiene or styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) describes families of synthetic rubbers derived from styrene and butadiene). These materials have good abrasion resistance and good aging stability when protected by additives.
About 50% of car tires are made from various types of SBR. The styrene/butadiene ratio influences the properties of the polymer: with high styrene content, the rubbers are harder and less rubbery. SBR is not to be confused with athermoplastic elastomer made from the same monomers, styrene-butadiene block copolymer.
Stylamer is emulsion grade Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) from Relflex’s (Reliance) elastomer range. SBR is one of the highest consumed synthetic rubbers in the world due to its versatility, enhanced abrasion resistance and low rolling resistance.
SBR is a versatile product and is used in wide spectrum of application.
Some of the major applications of SBR include passenger car and light truck tyres and truck tyre retreads. It is also preferred in applications such as conveyor belts, shoe soles, V-belts, moulded rubber goods etc. It is also extensively used in the manufacture of other products such as extruded gaskets, hoses, brake & clutch pads, automobile mats, flooring, rubber toys, food packaging, adhesives and chewing gum among others.
