Rubber Cables Market: By Resin Type
The global rubber cables market is segmented into SBR, EPDM, NBR, CSP, EVA, PCP, CSP and CPE on the basis of resin type. SBR (Styrene butadiene rubber) is one of the cheapest synthetic elastomer which is often used as a substitute for the natural rubber. The SBR possesses an excellent physical properties of styrene butadiene such as good aging stability and good abrasion resistance. Styrene butadiene is derived from two different types of monomers namely, butadiene and styrene. Mixture of these two different types of monomers is polymerized by two processes, namely from solution, i.e. S-SBR or as an emulsion. Ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber is a type of synthetic rubber, which finds its usage in wide range of applications. The market for EPDM is majorly driven by its physical properties such as compatibility with polar substances, for instance, ketones, fireproof hydraulic liquids, alkalis, and hot and cold water among others.
The CSP rubber cables are also exceptionally resistant to mineral oils, grease and ozone. The resin finds its application in wide range of industry verticals including water processing, renewable energy, nuclear and thermal power stations, distribution and power networks, railways, ship wiring, and mining among others. EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is the copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene. Increased demand for the EVA resin is by wide range of end use industry vertical such as plastic and paper, biomedical engineering, packaging, and textile among others. PCP (Poplychloroprene) is one of the commercially available synthetic rubbers and is an exceptionally flexible and tough sheathing material with resistance to abrasions, tears, chipping, and crushing among others. CPE (Chlorinated Polyethylene) material is obtained through the substitution of hydrogen atoms with chlorine atoms in high density polyethylene (HPDE). The market for CPE resin type is majorly driven due to its excellent chemical and physical properties, such as resistance to ozone aging, thermal oxygen aging, and alkali and acid resistance.
