Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) is one of the cheaper general purpose rubbers that is sometimes used as a substitute for Natural Rubber (NR).
- Its physical strength, resilience and low temperature properties are usually inferior to Natural Rubber though heat-aging properties and abrasion resistance are better.
- SBR is not resistant to oil or fuel resistant and it can be prone to weathering.
- Typical applications include drive couplings, haul-off pads, shoe soles/heels and car tyres.
- Typical working temperature range: -25°C to +100°C for static sealing
