World Natural Rubber Application Analysis
In the world of rubber consumption, the rubber industry consumes more than 80% of the world's rubber. The total amount of rubber materials and products processed and manufactured by the company reaches more than 35 million tons. In summary, it can be divided into more than ten categories such as tires, pipes, belts, plates, and various types of profiles, plastic parts, glue liquids, and rubber shoes. They are related to the national economy, people's lives, national defense industry, and cutting-edge high-tech. They are widely used in many fields such as shock absorption, sealing, adhesives, wear-resistance, corrosion protection, insulation, and electrical conductivity. Most of them are rubber and fiber, metal, and plastics. Firmly combined with the rubber compound. In the entire rubber products, from the amount of rubber used, the largest tire, accounting for more than 50%, industrial, health, sports 30% accounted for 30%, daily products represented by rubber shoes, accounting for about 10%. Rubber products are mainly consumed in transportation, construction, industry, technology and other fields, of which the greatest dependence on traffic and construction.
Today, about 65% of rubber is used in the automotive industry, and the most used types of rubber are used. The amount of rubber used in a small car has exceeded 100 kilograms, including 37.8 kilograms of tires; more than 200 types of rubber products; rubber products used in automobile applications now account for more than 10% of the total cost of automobiles. They are as large as tires. , airbags, and fan belts, brake tubes, heat pipes, air conditioning tubes, sealing strips, as small as oil seals, O-rings, gaskets, shock absorbers, diaphragms, etc., distributed in the car's walking agencies, engines, bodywork, etc. The transmission, shock absorption, sealing, dust, air conditioning and security systems.
Rubber materials for construction account for about 15% to 20% of all rubber consumption, second only to tires. In addition to various construction machinery and transport equipment for construction on the site, it is mainly used on various types of structures for waterproofing, sealing, anti-vibration and sound insulation, such as building waterproof rubber membranes. Elastomeric sealants used in the joints of structures around the world are estimated to have an annual demand of at least 500,000 tons, of which the silicone rubber series is nearly half and the polyurethane series is about 30%. In addition, indoor dust-proof, sound-insulating gaskets, ground-based anti-seismic rubber seat cushions, etc., have become indispensable materials for high-rise modern buildings and buildings in recent years.
