SBR, which is short for styrene-butadiene rubber, is known for being hard and durable. It is also much less expensive than other synthetics. It is widely used for tires because of its durability, and resistance to friction and tearing. These qualities also make SBR useful for shoe soles and replacement heels, rubber cutting boards, and specialty gaskets. It is resistant to hydraulic brake fluids, so it used for seals in hydraulic braking systems. A liquid form of SBR was once used in making chewing gum.
