Synthetic rubber is a belong to the family of artificially- made polymer material which acts as an elastomer and has some rubber characteristics but differs in chemical structure and properties. An elastomer can undergo much more elastic deformation under stress than most materials returning to its original size without permanent deformation.
Synthetic rubber can serve as a substitute for natural rubber in many cases, especially when improved material properties are needed. They had good resistance to weather, sun, ozone & abrasions. Their versatility makes them useful in many applications requiring oil, weather or combination of these properties such as wire & cables, molded goods, soles & heels, adhesives & alike products.
Butyl rubber, sometimes just called "butyl", is a synthetic rubber, a copolymer of isobutylene with isoprene. The abbreviation IIR stands for isobutylene isoprene rubber.
Chloroprene Rubber (CR), also known as chlorobutadiene rubber, is an important diene-based elastomer. The name Neoprene® is a registered trademark of DuPont Performance Elastomers.
Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) is a family of unsaturated copolymers of 2-propenenitrile and various butadiene monomers (1,2-butadiene and 1,3-butadiene). Although its physical.
Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) is one of the cheaper synthetic general purpose elastomers that is sometimes used as a substitute for natural rubber (NR).
Polybutadiene (PBR) was one of the first types of synthetic elastomer, or rubber, to be invented. It didn't take a great a degree of imagination to come up with, as its very similar to natural rubber, polyisoprene.
