Reinforcement of synthetic and natural rubber goods.

Synthomer’s Pliolite S6 resins are styrene butadiene copolymers with a high styrene content (>80%) designed for reinforcement of synthetic and natural rubber used in tires, flooring, footwear and other industrial applications. These products offer performance attributes, such as superior hardness, flexibility and cut resistance for a cost-effective processing solution. They also can serve as an alternative to fillers for rubber goods with greater rigidity. They impart increased hardness, abrasion resistance, stiffness, flex-life and tear resistance in SBR, NBR, IR, NR, CR. Pliolite S6 resins can also be used in thermoplastic EVA as a reinforcing additive.

Benefits for your rubber goods

  • Provides increased stiffness over carbon black
  • Act as processing aid allowing lower mixing temperatures and achieve higher throughput on extruders
  • Increases the flex-life of rubber and inhibits the growth of cracks during flexing
