Liquid polybutadiene Market Overview to 2023:
Polybutadiene is a polymer based synthetic rubber formed by the polymerization of 1, 3-butadiene linkage. It is highly resistant to wear and tear, which enable its application in manufacturing tire, protective films and other coating products. Apart from this, it is also used as an additive in vast number of plastics such as polystyrene and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)The major applications of liquid polybutadiene includes bumpers, side wall of tires, rim cushion, golf balls and bead filler, among others. Moreover, due to the excellent electrical insulation properties and high cold resistance by keeping good flexibility at low temperature, it is suitable in electrical component parts.
