S-SBR

Our first synthetic rubber plant outside Japan is located on Jurong Island of Singapore. Sumitomo Chemical’s S-SBR has consistently earned high praises from customers in the tyre manufacturing industries both in Japan and overseas for being a highly fuel-efficient tyre material with outstanding abrasion resistance. Building on this reputation, our Singapore S-SBR plant has already become one of the primary suppliers of synthetic rubber to tyre manufacturers and factories in Asia.
