Industrial manufacturing of Nitrile Rubber 
INTRODUCTION
Acrylonitrile Butadiene copolymers are commonly known as Nitrile rubbers. India has consuming this rubber for over four decades,however, the consumption remained small and restricted to mainly the products requiring oil resistance properties. The picture changed rapidly since1970 as the combined properties of abrasion resistance even at hightemperatures was used for making products like rice dehusking rolls. Todayover 2500 MT of NBR is used in this single application the growth of automotive industries, oil companies have further spurred the demand of  Nitrile rubbers in India.The first rubber is to be commercialized is Natural rubber. Sincethat time two attempts have been made by scientists world over to study thestructure of natural rubber, elasticity of natural rubber and then try to synthesisa rubber that can do the job of natural rubber. During the World War II(1941),these attempts got the boost, when allies realized that natural rubber comesfrom East Asia was under the threat of Japanese aggressiveness and that warscannot be fought without rubber i.e. rubber tyres etc. Synthetic rubber manufacturing programs got stabilized and expanded due to improvementslike cold polymerization, oil extensions etc. Synthetic rubbers which can fully

or partially replace the natural rubbers are generally termed as general purposesynthetic rubbers. Today we have an array of synthetic rubbers.The second type of development involved considerations to havethose properties deficient in the natural rubber such as resistance to oil, heat,ozone etc. to be eliminated. Thus developments of special purpose rubbers like Nitrile rubber came on scene and has grown substantially.

SYNTHETIC RUBBER POSITION IN INDIA
At present consumption of all synthetic rubbers together isapproximately 22% of the total rubber consumed in India it is expected thatthe synthetic rubber consumption in India can be as much as 40% providedindigenous availability improves and import duties on rationalized for highlyspecialized rubber which are not produced in India. Presently the syntheticrubber scenario can be as under. Availability of monomers like butadiene,styrene in the country will play significant role in promoting production of general purpose rubbers like SBR, PBR in country. Though the SB production came in India 1963 by “Synthetics and Chemicals Ltd” it did notgrow with demand on natural rubber with its sustained growth supported thegrowth of rubber industry.Company NameTypePresentCapacity(MTA)Trade NameSynthetics & ChemicalsLtd.SBR40,000SynapreneAPAR Industries ltd.NBR10,000ApareneAPAR Industries ltd.HSR9000PowereneUnimers India ltdEPDM6000Herlene NOCILEVA50000Powerene
