!Polymer name!!Properties of Concern
 
|-
 
|[[Rubber (natural, vulcanized)|Rubber, natural]]||Vulcanized rubber may emit sulfur fumes that will tarnish metals and stain organic materials
 
|-
 
|[[Polybutadiene]] ([[Buna]])||Compounded with a wide variety of materials
 
|-
 
|[[Polystyrene]]||Compounded with a wide variety of materials
 
|-
 
|[[Nitrile rubber]] (NBR)||Some NBR are blended with PVC and contain chloride
 
|-
 
|[[Styrene-butadiene rubber]] (SBR)||Tendency to crawl; Compounded with a wide variety of materials
 
|-
 
|[[Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene]] (ABS)||Compounded with a wide variety of materials
 
|-
 
|[[Ethylene propylene rubber]] (EPR)
 
|-
 
|[[Ethylene propylene diene]] (EPDM) ||May be crosslinked with other products with sulfur vulcanization
 
|-
 
|[[Butyl rubber]] ([[Isoprene]])
 
|-
 
|[[Neoprene]] ([[polychloroprene]])||Chlorinated, may off-gas acids
 
|-
 
|[[Polysulfide]]||May contain PCB’s, can cause damage to metals when in contact with stainless and carbon steels
 
|-
 
|[[Polyurethane]] ([[Spandex fiber|Spandex]])||Problematic class of materials
 
|-
 
|[[Silicone resin|Silicone Rubber]] ||Off-gassing depends on the initial curing system, platinum based cures have no offgassing; condensation cures can produce acid, neutral or basic chemicals during curing; peroxide cures can produce ketones or chlorinated aromatic chemicals as the material ages and breaks down.
