SBR / RED RUBBER

Styrene-butadiene rubber, known as SBR and Red Rubber, is a copolymer with properties closely related to Natural Rubber. It is known for having good abrasion resistance, resilience, high tensile strength and excellent impact strength. This material is operable in a versatile temperature range of -40˚F to 180˚F. This material is commonly used for lining rubber, conveyor belt covers and applications demanding extreme temperature tolerances.
