Synthetic rubber, like other polymers, consists of many petroleum monomers. The most widely used elastomer is styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) derived from the copolymerization of styrene and 1,3-butadiene.
Synthetic rubber is used as an alternative to natural rubber in many cases. They provide a different set of physical and chemical properties, so that the reliability of a particular product or application can be improved. Synthetic rubber is superior to natural rubber in two main respects, thermal stability and resistance to oils and related compounds.
