Butyl rubber is a copolymer or isobutylene and a small percentage of isoprene and has a very low permeability to air and other gases. It has excellent resistance to ozone, oxidation and sunlight, with an excellent temperature range of -45° C to + 130° C. Butyl has a very low resilience, which makes it ideal for vibration damping and shock absorption applications but offer a moderate resistance to abrasion and compression set. With careful compounding, Butyl compound can be made to acquire really good tensile strength. It is resistant to most inorganic products and highly resistant to mineral acids, alkaline and aqueous acids. We do not recommend its use in application where resistance to oils and Hydrocarbons is required. We can offer halogenated Butyl Rubber Sheets for specified applications.
If required, we supply technical rubbers in the form of semi-finished or finished products. Most of the standard technical rubbers in our range are permanently in stock, so we can offer not only very short delivery or production times, but also the possibility of producing atypical variants from a single piece.
Delivery times: It mainly depends on the batch size and the complexity of products. Our standard delivery time is usually no more than one week of placing the order. Given our warehouse stock we are able to offer production on short notice in emergency situations.
