SBR rubber sheetings
Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR)
is the largest volume of synthetic rubbers. Compared to natural rubber, SBR sheetings have better processability, heat aging and abrasion resistance but is inferior in terms of elongation, hot tear strength, hysteresis, resilience and tensile strength.
With over 70% being consumed in the manufacture of tyres and tyre products, the demand of the SBR rubber is very much dependent on the automotive sector.
Since the material exhibits excellent resistance to brake fluids as well as good moisture resistance, synthetic rubber components are commonly used in hydraulic brake system seals and diaphragms. SBR rubber sheetings are also widely used in mechanical rubber parts, panel grommets and body pads.
