Already in 1909, it has been succeeded, to produce a synthetic, elastic substance. In 1929, Butadiene Rubber was produced and also in 1929, the first economical usable Synthetic Rubber.

Today, SBR is the most common Synthetic Rubber for use in applications especially for the production of tires, gaskets and conveyor belts.

The modern Synthetic Rubber types offer a wide range of applications. The working temperatures are in spectrum from minus 50°C up to far above 200°C. Most types are characterized by a good resistance against ozone, weather and aggressive chemical oils, and the today’s industry can’t be imagined without them anymore: from car tires over rubber gloves to gaskets, membranes up to fuel hoses – all of them are made of Synthetic Rubber.
