A MATERIAL FOR HOSES – SBR RUBBER
Last time we talk about Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)
So this time I want to talk about the different materials of hose - SBR Rubber.
Polymerized Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), its physical properties, processing properties, and the use of products close to natural rubber, some properties such as wear resistance, heat resistance, aging resistance, and curing speed better than natural rubber, can be used with natural rubber and a variety of synthetic rubber, widely used in tires, tapes, hoses, wires and cables, medical appliances and various rubber products production and other fields, is the largest general synthetic rubber species, but also the earliest to achieve It is the largest variety of general-purpose synthetic rubber and one of the first rubber varieties to be industrially produced.
By polymerization process, SBR is divided into emulsion styrene butadiene rubber (ESBR) and soluble styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR). The emulsion SBR process is more advantageous in terms of cost savings than the SSBR process, and approximately 75% of the global SBR plant capacity is based on the emulsion SBR process. Lactobutadiene rubber has good all-round performance, is a mature process, is widely used, and has the highest capacity, production, and consumption among SBRs. Oil-filled SBR has the advantages of good processing performance, low heat generation, good low-temperature flexibility, etc. It has excellent traction performance and wears resistance when used in tread rubber, and the plasticity of rubber is enhanced after oil-filling, which makes it easy to mix while reducing costs and increasing production. At present, the world's oil-filled styrene butadiene rubber accounts for about 50-60% of the total production of styrene butadiene rubber.
