Polybutadiene Elastomers Overview
Polybutadiene elastomers (PBR), a synthetic rubber, is the second largest produced product globally after styrene-butadiene elastomers (SBR). Vulcanized polybutadiene elastomers exhibits high resilience, which signifies its ability to regain shape and size after going through a series of stresses. Furthermore, polybutadiene elastomers are also resistant against abrasion and resistance from cut growth (growth in the size of initial cut in the cured rubber). All these characteristics of polybutadiene elastomers make it ideal for the manufacturing of tires and consumer goods. The global polybutadiene elastomers market is widely used in the industrial manufacturing sector. Also, its application as an impact modifier for ABS and high-impact polystyrene makes it the second largest market for polybutadiene elastomers. Polybutadiene elastomers are incorporated with several other materials in order to make various products, such as hoses, belts, conveyor belts and consumer products such as golf ball centers etc. The global market for polybutadiene elastomers is expected to have a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to its durable nature in the manufacturing industries.
