Synthetic rubbers are highly versatile materials that are sought out for their elastic properties and their ability to withstand deformation under stress. Generally, these rubbers for compounding are used in industries ranging from aerospace to automotive for their extreme durability, elasticity, and chemical and temperature resistance. Common applications include automotive tubing, parts and seals, sports equipment, roofing, cabling insulation, footwear components, military and more.

Synthetic rubbers are typically used in the automotive industry for tires, doors, gaskets, and even flooring. With a range of physical and chemical properties that can improve the reliability of a given product or application, some synthetic rubbers are much more resistant to oxidizing agents which can prolong the life of products.
