Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber: A Trend Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), a synthetic rubber, is a copolymer of styrene and butadiene. SBR, also known as four-monomer copolymer, is categorized on the basis of different production processes as Emulsion SBR (E-SBR), produced through a continuous free-radical polymerization process; and as Solution SBR (S-SBR), produced from solution through batch/continuous ionic polymerization process. Implementation of stringent tire labelling regulations in the European Union, China and South Korea is projected to drive growth in the Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber market. The new tire labelling regulation requires manufacturers to display tire characteristics and performance features such as rolling resistance, fuel efficiency, wet grip features, and noise, among others, for easy comparison. This thereby exerts pressure on tire producers to manufacture high performance tires using S-SBR as against the conventional SBR and E-SBR. In addition to tire manufacturing, S-SBR also finds application in adhesives, conveyor belts and footwear production.
