Improve formulations for automotive vibration control, hoses and gaskets

Butyl rubbers' unique combination of barrier properties, high damping, resistance to ozone and heat aging make them ideal for many automotive applications.

Vibration control
Exxon™ chlorobutyl rubber and Exxon™ bromobutyl rubber offer high damping, fast reversion-resistant cures and excellent aging properties, especially with respect to hot flex fatigue. They can be formulated to have an intermediate level of oil resistance, making them suitable for engine and transmission mounts and automotive exhaust hanger formulations.

Rely on the high heat resistance capabilities of Exxon chlorobutyl rubber for steam and hot-water hose applications

The low compression set of chlorobutyl rubber compounds and their resistance to attack in a variety of environmental conditions make them suitable for many types of gaskets.
