Trelleborg uses natural rubber in its large tires, springs and rubber bearings as well as its hoses, seals and coated fabrics. Synthetic rubber, such as styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and isoprene rubber, has properties that are similar to those of natural rubber. In mixes, it is used as outer rubber in blasting hoses, oil and gasoline hoses, tires and more. Nitrile rubber (NBR) is often used with other types of rubber for added elasticity, abrasion resistance and ability to withstand low temperatures. Ethylene-propylene rubber (EPM/EPDM) is suitable for high temperatures and used for sealing profiles, hoses and more.
