About BR (Butadiene Rubber)

BR (Butadiene Rubber) is one of the cheapest synthetic rubbers or general purpose elastomers obtained from the monomer 1,3-butadiene via its anionic polymerization or coordination polymerization in a non-polar solvent. It is sometimes used as a replacement to natural rubber (NR). It is available in three types, viz. high-cis, medium-cis, and low-cis, with medium-cis rubber being the most popular grade. BR is most widely used in the manufacture of tires owing to its high resistance to wear and abrasion. 

Synonyms:

  • Butadiene rubber 
  • Polybutadiene rubber (PBD) 
  • poly (buta-1,3-diene)

Industrial Uses

  • Tires 
  • Plastics
  • Golf balls
  • Hoses
  • Railway pads and bridge blocks
  • Blended with nitrile rubber
  • Super or crazy balls (toys)

Production Processes

  • Production of BR (Butadiene Rubber) from 1,3-Butadiene via Ziegler-Natta Polymerisation

In this process, butadiene gas is dissolved in hydrocarbon solvent, which is then polymerised in the presence of Ziegler-Natta catalyst to finally give BR (Butadiene Rubber).
