Nitrate butadiene rubber is a class of synthetic rubber which is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile. Nitrate butadiene rubber has excellent qualities such as resistance to oil, fuel, and other chemicals which paves their way into many end user industry such as automotive, oil and gas, mining, construction and medicine among others. In the automotive and aeronautical industry, nitrate butadiene rubber finds its application in making, oil and fuel handling hoses, grommets, seats, and self-sealing fuel tanks. The ability to withstand high temperature makes it ideal for use in nuclear and aeronautical applications. Nitrate butadiene rubber is also used in the manufacture of footwear, adhesives, sealants, floor mates, sponges and others. Moreover, nitrate butadiene rubber is also used in the production of protective gloves, owing to superior strength and high resistance to oils and acids. However, volatile raw material prices can be seen as a major down side to the growth of the nitrate butadiene rubber market.
