Synthetic Rubber

Astlett Rubber is a trader-distributor of raw materials to the rubber industry, since 1885. We acquire synthetic and natural rubber off-shore and ship directly to our customers or distribute via our warehouses in major cities in North America.

Astlett Rubber provides useful technical information of various synthetic and natural rubber grades as an aid to our customers on our website. Any trademarks belong to their owners. If you have any questions about our synthetic rubber products, feel free to contact us.

Styrene Butadiene Rubber is made from styrene and butadiene by low temperature emulsification polymerization and has various rubber characteristics for common use.
Butadiene Rubber is mixed with other rubbers to improve anti-wearing, anti-twist, repulsive elasticity and coldness endurance.
Butyl Rubber is used in the production of tire inner tubes, diaphragms of shaper-vulkanizers, latex of butyl rubber and numerous other applications.
Synthetic Isoprene Rubber is used for the production of various rubber-technical articles, including food applications, rubber footwear, sporting goods, bonding compounds, tires, and water repellant compositions.
NBR products have better oil stability with low absorption and expansion by hydrocarbon oil, grease, solvent and fuel. This property is from the mixing with acrylonitrile, butadiene and some additives. NBR can provide various grades of products with use of wide range of ACN content, viscosity, emulsification additives, and stabilizing mixtures.

Ethylene Propylene Diene Rubber applications include automotive parts, electrical applicances, cables and waterproofing membranes. EPDM products are used for all applications where outstanding resistance to ageing and ozone is required.

Polychloroprene rubbers have a generally good balance of mechanical properties and fatigue resistance, second only to natural rubber, but with superior chemical, oil, and heat resistance. It is widely used in general engineering applications.
This is a family of rubbers designed for very high temperature operation. They can operate continuously somewhere in excess of 200°C depending on the grade, and intermittently to temperatures as high as 300°C. There are standard and special grades and the latter can be designed to have special properties such as improved low-temperature resistance.
Properties depend on the acrylonitrile (ACN) content and on the degree of hydrogenation. HNBR can be tailored to particular applications but have the general advantage over standard nitrile rubber of having higher temperature resistance and higher strength.
