Is a simple conjugated diene with the formula C4H6. It is an important industrial chemical used as a monomer in the production of synthetic rubber.
Is a chemical compound with the formula C3H3N. This colourless liquid often appears yellow due to impurities. It is an important monomer for the manufacture of useful plastics such as polyacrylonitrile.
Is an organic chemical compound, linear alpha-olefin (alkene), and one of the isomers of butene. The formula is C4H8. 1-butene is used to manufacture lots of other chemical products, such as linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), polypropylene resins, polybutene, butylene oxide, and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
Sodium carbonate (also known as washing soda or soda ash), Na2CO3 is a sodium salt of carbonic acid. It most commonly occurs as a crystalline heptahydrate, which readily effloresces to form a white powder, the monohydrate. Sodium carbonate is domestically well known for its everyday use as a water softener.
Styrene, also known as vinyl benzene and phenyl ethane, is an organic compound with the chemical formula C6H5CH=CH2. This derivative of benzene is a colourless oily liquid that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell, although high concentrations confer a less pleasant odour. Styrene is the precursor to polystyrene and several copolymers.
PET consists of polymerized units of the monomer ethylene terephthalate, with repeating (C10H8O4) units. It is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibres for clothing, containers for liquids and foods, thermoforming for manufacturing, and in combination with glass fibre for engineering resins.
Is a synthetic rubber. Polybutadiene rubber is a polymer formed from the polymerization of the monomer 1,3-butadiene. Polybutadiene has a high resistance to wear and is used especially in the manufacture of tires, which consumes about 70% of the production. Another 25% is used as an additive to improve the toughness (impact resistance) of plastics such as polystyrene and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).
Is the organic compound with the formula C6H4(CO)2O. It is the anhydride of phthalic acid. Phthalic anhydride is a principal commercial form of phthalic acid. It was the first anhydride of a dicarboxylic acid to be used commercially. This white solid is an important industrial chemical, especially for the large-scale production of plasticizers for plastics. In 2000, the worldwide production volume was estimated to be about 3 million tonnes per year.
Nitrile Butadiene Rubber(NBR)
NBR stands for "Nitrile Butadiene Rubber" or simply called "Nitrile Rubber" or "Buna-N". It is an oil-resistant synthetic rubber produced from copolymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile. The common areas where it finds its applications are gaskets; rollers; fuel hoses and various other products where resistance to oil is required.
NBR latex is a synthetic latex that has a milky colour and a liquid form and is used for dipping rubber for medical and laboratory gloves, etc. thanks to its excellent tensile strength, oil resistance, etc. available in medium nitrile, medium-high nitrile, and high nitrile, according to the relative concentration of acrylonitrile.
Natural rubber, also called India rubber, latex, Amazonian rubber, caucho or caoutchouc, as initially produced, consists of polymers of the organic compound isoprene, with minor impurities of other organic compounds, plus water. Natural rubber is used extensively in many applications and products, either alone or in combination with other materials. In most of its useful forms, it has a large stretch ratio and high resilience and is extremely waterproof.
