Industrial Rubber Products are in great demand in various industrial
applications like mining, power generation, agriculture, transportation,
paper industries etc.
Rubber has been used in the making of a wide range of products since a long
period of time. Rubber is a name given to a lot of different polymers. These
polymers are all elastomers that can be stretched out and they return to
their original shape when you let go. The first rubber was the natural type
derived from the sap of hevea trees in Central America. We still use it
today, but with technology advancements, several other kinds of rubber that
people invented, mixing different chemicals having different properties with
the natural rubber. The artificially made rubber, "inspired" by
natural rubber, is known as synthetic rubber.
Types of Industrial Rubber Products
Some of the industrial rubber
goods can be categorized under the following heads:
There are different types of synthetic rubber such as Styrene butadiene
rubber (SBR), Polybutadiene rubber (BR), Isoprene rubber (IR) ,
Acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), Ethylene Propylene (EPDM), Chloroprene
rubber (CR), Butyl rubber (IIR), Fluorocarbon (FKM) which we have discussed
in details in Types of Synthetic
. Today syntetic rubber is used to make a variety of products
used in industrial, residential and commercial applications. Many different
rubber polymers are used in the production of industrial rubber products.
Due to the diversity of industrial rubber products applications, the rubber
products have a spectrum of performance requirements, ranging from common
strength properties to fluid resistance, conductivity, friction coefficient,
permeation, and dynamic properties, and many more.
