Synthetic rubber is a man-made polymer material which acts as an elastomer. Synthetic rubbers can be used as a substitute for natural rubber in many cases or when improved material properties are needed. They can be made by the polymerisation of a number of monomers including butadiene, isoprene and chloroprene. The two main synthetic rubbers manufactured from butadiene are styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and polybutadiene rubber (BR).
