Manufacturing innertubes with Exxon™ butyl rubber or Exxon™ chlorobutyl rubber instead of natural rubber provides numerous benefits to the users of bicycle tires, radial truck tube-type tires and some severe service, off-road tire applications.
Butyl rubber offers superior inflation pressure retention to natural rubber and has better heat resistance, tear strength and aging resistance. This combination makes butyl rubber a good choice for stringent operating conditions such as long distance travel at high operating speeds and heavy payloads under difficult weather and temperature conditions.
