Description

Rubbers are kinds of polymers that happen to be elastic (stretchy) at use temperatures. Thus out of the more than 100 polymers that Polycrafters can make, some of them (listed below) happen to be rubbers based on their materials properties. This page explains the kinds of rubbers that Polycrafters can make and why they are useful. In general rubbers can be used in the injection molder, the extruder and the crafting table to create a host of Polycraft items with exciting new and old functionalities.

Rubber Abbreviation Raw Material Tech Level Rating (Pressure, Toughness)
Natural Rubber NR Bag (PolyIsoPrene Pellets) 1 Low
Butyl Rubber BR Bag (PolyIsoButylene Pellets) 5 Medium
Synthetic Rubber PBR (low grade) Bag (PolyButadiene (low-cis) Pellets) 5 Medium
Synthetic Rubber PBR (high grade) Bag (PolyButadiene (high-cis) Pellets) 5 Medium
Engineered Rubber SBR Bag (Styrene-Butadiene Rubber Pellets) 8 High
Engineered Rubber HBR Bag (Nitrile-Butadiene Rubber Pellets) 8 High
Engineered Rubber HNBR Bag (Hydrogenated Nitrile-Butadiene Rubber Pellets) 8 High
Extreme Rubber CIIR Bag (Chlorine Isobutylene-Isoprene Rubber Pellets) 8+ Extreme
Extreme Rubber BIIR Bag (Bromine Isobutylene-Isoprene Rubber Pellets) 8+ Extreme
Extreme Rubber EPDM Bag (Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Monomer Pellets) 8+ Extreme
Extreme Rubber EVA Bag (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate Pellets) 8+ Extreme
Extreme Rubber PUR Bag (PolyUrethane Pellets) 8+ Extreme

Rubber Recipes

This page lists several (non-comprehensive) examples of rubber products. Each specific Polycraft Item page will detail the specifics. This page is meant as a guide to processing rubbers and in many cases, different types of rubbers or rubber products can be substituted into the recipes.

Injection Molder:

  • Grip (Natural Rubber): as the name implies, is only made with PolyIsoPrene Pellets
  • Running shoes (walker, jogger, and runner versions) are made from all classes below extreme rubbers
  • Running Shoes (Sprinter) are made through intermediates by making extreme rubber insoles, midsoles and outsoles and combining them on the crafting table with engineering thermoplastics such as Nylon.
  • Scuba Fins (all classes)
  • Scuba Mask (all classes) - Note: Masks with Lights must be subsequently crafted
  • Gaskets (all classes)
  • Life Preserver (NR, SBR, EVA)

Extruder:

  • Hose (all classes)
  • Fibers, Tethers and Cords (limited implementation as of version 1.1.2)

Crafting Table:

  • Rubber Armor of all kinds following standard crafting recipes with rubber pellets
