Linear BR(Butadiene Rubber) is a synthetic rubber made by applying solution polymerization method on butadiene. It has a higher proportion of cis isomers (97% content). BR is used largely for tires, shoes and golf balls because of its excellent wear resistance, bend resistance, rebound resilience and cold resistance.

This material data has been provided by LG Chem.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
