Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR)
Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) is the most common and economical synthetic rubber compound available and is used in a broad range of industrial applications. Styrene butadiene rubber is a polymeride created from styrene and butadiene. Oil refineries derive styrene and butadiene from petroleum, then combine 25% styrene with 75% butadiene to make SBR.
Pierce-Roberts uses SBR in their molded rubber products because of SBR's resistance to chemicals, solvents, and extreme heat. SBR is a synthetic compound that can be easily and effectively bonded to an assortment of materials. Because SBR's properties are also similar to natural rubber's, styrene butadiene rubber can replace natural rubber in many products.
