Advantages and disadvantages of styrene butadiene rubber

Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) is an unsaturated hydrocarbon polymer with a solubility parameter of about. Under the action of light, heat, oxygen and ozone, the physical and chemical reactions will occur, but its oxidation is slower than that of natural rubber, and the aging reaction rate is slower even at higher temperature. The aging effect of light on rubber was not obvious, but its ozone resistance was worse than that of natural rubber. The brittleness temperature is about - 450C, and the low temperature performance is slightly poor.


Compared with general rubber, it has the following advantages and disadvantages:


1. Advantages

(1) The compound is not easy to scorch and sulfurize, and has good vulcanization flatness.

(2) Wear resistance, heat resistance, oil resistance and aging resistance are better than natural rubber. High temperature wear resistance, suitable for passenger tire.

(3) In processing, the molecular weight will not decrease when it is reduced to a certain extent, so it is not easy to be over tempered and the plasticity is uniform. The hardness of vulcanizate changed little.

(4) High filling can be achieved by increasing the molecular weight. Oil extended SBR has good processability.

(5) It is easy to be used with other unsaturated general rubber, especially with natural rubber and cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber. The disadvantages of styrene butadiene rubber can be overcome by adjusting the formula.


2. Shortcomings

(1) The strength of pure glue is low, and it can be used only by adding high active reinforcing agent. It is more difficult to add the compounding agent than natural rubber, and the dispersibility of the mixture in rubber is poor.

(2) There are many trans structure, irregular structure and benzene ring on the side base, so it has more hysteresis loss, higher heat generation, lower elasticity and lower cold resistance than natural rubber. But the heat generation can be reduced after oil filling.

(3) Unvulcanized rubber compound has large shrinkage, low strength and poor adhesion.

(4) The curing rate is slower than that of natural rubber.

(5) The results showed that the bending and cracking resistance of vulcanizate was better than that of natural rubber, but the crack propagation speed was faster. The thermal tearing property is poor.
