Duradene™ Solution SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber)

Duradene™ solution SBRs are designed to be used in a variety of rubber applications including tires, flooring, conveyor belts and other mechanical rubber goods.

Duradene™ typically has narrow molecular weight distribution, completely randomized styrene, and 99% rubber hydrocarbon. In addition, the styrene and vinyl contents can be customized to achieve specific polymer properties.

Compared to emulsion SBR, Duradene™ will generally have better abrasion resistance, low hysteresis, faster cure rate and better low temperature flexibility.
