Polyisoprene Production Cost Analysis 2020
Polyisoprene is known as a collective name for polymers that are often manufactured by the polymerisation of isoprene. There are about four different isomers that form cis-1,4-polyisoprene, which is also known to be the isoprene rubber.
Some users of this chemical compound included natural Gutta-percha and synthesized trans-1,4-polyisoprenes for golf balls. It is also used in contraceptives as polyisoprene condoms, providing an alternative to conventional latex condoms. Isoprene rubber or IR is produced by the polymerisation of synthetic isoprene, which is obtained by the thermal cracking of the naphtha fraction of petroleum. Polymerisation is also conducted in solution, using both anionic and Ziegler-Natta catalysts. This product is at most 98 percent cis-1,4 polyisoprene, and its structure is not as regular as natural rubber in other respects. Thus, it does not crystallise as readily as the natural material.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Polyisoprene production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
