What is Butyl Rubber (IIR, CIIR, BIIR)?
Butyl Rubber (IIR, CIIR, BIIR) is a synthetic rubber produced by copolymerization of isobutene along with small amount of isoprene. Being impermeable to air and gases, it is used in applications requiring airtight rubber.
Uses of Butyl Rubber (IIR, CIIR, BIIR)
Butyl Rubber (IIR, CIIR, BIIR) is used to produce tire inner liners, adhesives, chewing gum, agricultural chemicals, fiber optic compounds, ball bladders, O-rings, caulks and sealants, pharmaceutical closures, cling film, electrical fluids, lubricants (two-stroke engine oil), paper and pulp, personal care products, pigment concentrates, for rubber and polymer modification, for protecting and sealing certain equipment for use in areas where chemical weapons are present, as a gasoline/diesel fuel additive, and protective clothing.
