Polybutadiene Properties




Polybutadiene is a synthetic rubber that is a polymer formed from the polymerization process of the monomer 1,3-butadiene. It has a high resistance to wear and is used especially in the manufacture of tires. Its use in the tread portion of giant truck tires helps to improve the abrasion, and to run the tire comparatively cool, since the internal heat comes out quickly. It is also used as a fuel in combination with an oxidizer in various solid rocket boosters such as Japan's H-IIB launch vehicle. Polybutadiene rubber can be blended with nitrile rubber for easy processing. However large use may affect oil resistance of nitrile rubber.
