Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR)

Styrene Butadiene Rubber ( SBR )

SBR for the bitumen industry is offered in both powder or liquid form depending on your requirements

SBR is more formally known as Styrene Butadiene Rubber. it’s most commonly used in its form as a thickish, gloopy white liquid, which echoes its roots as a synthetic latex.

It is called styrene butadiene copolymer latex admixture, which is SBR latex. It is not ‘pure’ SBR, but a co-polymer which has been doctored and doped and diluted to give it the properties we need in the construction industry, that is designed as an integral adhesive for cement bond coats, mortars and concrete to improve bond strength and chemical resistance.  It is widely used in construction, highway, railway, special bridge, oil well and military installation engineering.

    • Drive couplings
    • Haul-off pads
    • Conveyor belts
    • Shoe soles and heels
    • Adhesives
    • Roll coverings and
    • Car tires
    • Much reduced water and cement ratio improves strength and workability
    • Improved resistance to a wide range of common chemicals
    • Improved resistance to damp and water vapour
    • Improves bond strengths to hardened concrete
    • Improve the temperature sensitivity of concrete
    • Increased resistance to cracking and aging
  • Compounded
LIQUID FORM

SBR is more formally known as Styrene Butadiene Rubber. it’s most commonly used in its form as a thickish, gloopy white liquid, which echoes its roots as a synthetic latex.

It is called styrene butadiene copolymer latex admixture, which is SBS latex. It is not ‘pure’ SBR, but a co-polymer which has been doctored and doped and diluted to give it the properties we need in the construction industry, that is designed as an integral adhesive for cement bond coats, mortars and concrete to improve bond strength and chemical resistance.  It is widely used in construction, highway, railway, special bridge, oil well and military installation engineering.
