3. Tires: It is used to manufacture all kinds of tires. Most tires are made of artificial rubber nowadays. Because of its good ductility and toughness, it is considered to be an ideal choice for automobile tires.


In addition to the uses and applications mentioned above, it can also be used in the manufacture of mechanical belts, mechanical hoses and seals, or in the manufacture of different types of gaskets. Synthetic rubber can be used to make boots, diving suits, sleeping bags, protective clothing, etc. Due to its adhesive properties, it is also used in the manufacture of adhesives.
