Today, more than ever, the chemical industry has to respond to the needs of society as efficiently and as fast as possible. That’s especially valid in the healthcare industry. Quality and reliable supply of raw materials for packaging are crucial for getting access to medical treatments to people all over the world.
Exceptional cleanliness and efficient delivery. ExxonMobil supports the healthcare industry providing global availability of high quality solutions, meeting the increasingly demanding requirements related to cleanliness, drug compatibility, low extractables and leachables. Exxon halobutyl rubber and Exxpro™ specialty elastomer are the ideal solutions for a safe storage of sensitive drugs and other critical applications.
Performance and benefits
- Low modulus rubber helping airtight sealing of the device
- Puncture resistance to preserve the integrity of the medicine
- Wide latitude in cure and co-cure with a variety of rubber, with the option to cure without ZnO leading to high flexibility and a cleaner curing process
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.
Other industries and applications
When it comes to tires, innerliners can make the difference in fuel efficiency, which can result in a reduction of CO2 emissions.
Across many industries, a variety of applications ranging from hoses, adhesives & sealants, sporting leisure, and general rubber goods rely on butyl rubber.
