Buna Rubber: The Birth of an Industry. By Frank Atherton Howard. New York: D. Van Nostrand Company, Pp. xii, $ - Volume 8 Issue 2 - Theodore F. MarburgAuthor: Theodore F. Marburg. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Howard, Frank A. (Frank Atherton), Buna rubber. New York, D. Van Nostrand Co. (OCoLC) Germar Rudolf: The Chemistry of Auschwitz—Buna Rubber, Zyklon B, Prussian Blue and the Gas Chambers Auschwitz was a center of chemistry. The German chemical industry built gigantic factories for rubber, fuel, lubricants and methanol there, and the SS experimented with natural sources of rubber. Foreseeing the birth of a major new industry, the farm interests started arguing in favor of making Buna from alcohol (the most expensive method). They cited the fact that the Russians, also long active in the synthetic rubber field, started from alcohol.

Buna-N Rubber Sheets and Strips Greater tensile strength than standard Food-Grade Oil-Resistant Buna-N rubber gives these sheets and strips better shock-absorbing qualities and longer life. They’re made from FDA-listed materials for use with food and beverage and offer good resistance to . Styrene-butadiene or styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) describe families of synthetic rubbers derived from styrene and butadiene (the version developed by Goodyear is called Neolite).These materials have good abrasion resistance and good aging stability when protected by additives. In , more than million tonnes of SBR were processed worldwide. About 50% of car tires are made from various.

Frank A. Howard, Buna rubber: The birth of an industry (New York, ), The most common type of synthetic rubber currently in use, Buna S (styrene butadiene rubber or SBR), was developed in by the German company I.G. Farben. In , American chemist Samuel Emmett Horne, Jr. developed a polymer of 98 percent cis-1,4-polyisoprene that behaves like natural rubber.

Nitrile Buna-N rubber, also known as NBR or Buna-N, is a unique synthetic elastomer that has an excellent degree of resistance when fuels, oils and greases are present whereas other rubbers would degrade and deform. Unlike other rubber varieties like SBR or EPDM, this oil resistant rubber sheet exhibits an excellent lifespan.

It is normally the least expensive of the rubber types we will discuss here. NBR is compatible with petroleum fluids (including dinosaur and synthetic lubricating oils, pure gasoline, and diesel fuel). Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the general term for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Copolymer. It is the most widely used and economical elastomer. NBR offers excellent resistance to petroleum-based oils and fuels, silicone greases, hydraulic fluids, water and alcohols.
