Butyl Rubber (IIR) is a synthetic rubber, a copolymer of isobutylene (98%) with isoprene. The abbreviation IIR stands for Isobutylene Isoprene Rubber (IIR). Butyl rubber (IIR) is characterized by its excellent resistance to ozone. It can be compounded with fillers and other modifiers and then vulcanized into practical rubber products.
Butyl rubber (IIR) is highly resistant to oxygen, ozone, and solutions of acids, alkalis and salt. The typical working temperature range of Butyl rubber (IIR) products is -50°C / -25°C to +120°C.
Butyl rubber (IIR) is mostly being used for tire inner tubes. However, Butyl Rubber (IIR) can also be used in the manufacture of the following applications:
- Caulks and sealants
- Chewing gum
