An American chemist known as Joseph Cecil Patrick discovered Polysulfide rubber in 1926 by, while he was attempting to obtain ethylene glycol for use as an antifreeze. This rubber was commercialized u

Polysulfide Rubber (PSR)  A detailed description of
Properties of Polysulfide rubber (PSR)
  • This rubber is known for its excellent resistance to solvents.
  • It has low temperature flexibility.
  • It has flex-crack resistance.
  • It also has oxygen and ozone resistance.
  • It is resistant to light.
  • It is impermeable to gases.
  • Poor tensile strength and abrasion resistance.
These rubber is very soft, stretchy and long lasting. It is good for making molds with severe undercuts and/or very fine detail. There are some molds still in production which are more than 40 years old. Unlike other mold rubbers, PSR is not characterized by sulfur or water based modeling clays. Model preparation is very less. Once cured, these molds are good for casting wax and gypsum plasters. However, since heat resistance, compression set and mechanical strength are not very great, polysulfide rubber is recommended for specific applications which cannot be satisfied by any other elastomer. Temperature range required is -54 degrees to +107 degrees celcius. Polysulfide seals are recommended for service involving contact with solutions of ketones, ethers and petroleum solvents.

  • The most common problem of these rubber is that this rubber with lead curatives has an offensive odor.
  • Newly built polysulfide molds stain plaster.
  • Polysulfides have poor abrasion resistance and hence are not good for casting concrete.
  • It is not suitable for production casting of resins.
  • Polysulfides must be mixed accurately by weight with other elastomers or they will not work.
  • This rubber is of moderate cost. It is higher than latex and urethanes but lower than silicones.
