Additional Butyl applications
Life is butyl-ful. Hoses, windows glazing, engine mounts, train rail pads, protection gloves, inflatable dams, adhesives & sealants, roofing and waterproofing membranes or even balls and shoe soles. Butyl rubber can be used in a variety of applications encountered in daily life.
At ExxonMobil, we produce an extensive portfolio of butyl and halobutyl rubber grades: whether your priority is on impermeability, damping, aging and fatigue resistance - or on even all of them - we provide you with multiple solutions while making the most suitable choice meeting your specific application requirements.
Exxon™ butyl rubber (IIR) ensures excellent air-barrier, weathering resistance, aging resistance, vibration damping and good compression set.
Exxon™ chlorobutyl rubber (CIIR) provides an improved compression set and better resistance to heat, ozone and flex fatigue compared with regular butyl rubber, while maintaining the same excellent air-barrier properties.
Exxon™ bromobutyl rubber (BIIR) provides faster and more stable cure through additional carbon-carbon cross-linking compared with regular butyl rubber, while maintaining the same excellent air-barrier properties.
