Butyl rubber is a synthetic rubber compound or copolymer composed of isobutylene and isoprene. Isobutylene is a chemical compound consisting of methyl and propylene while isoprene, consisting of menthyl and butadiene, makes the rubber unsaturated and able to vulcanize. Today, Butyl rubber is one of the commonly-used synthetic rubber compounds on the market. Other common applications include inner tubes, o-rings, stoppers for medical bottles, and pharmaceutical supplies.
Butyl has a temperature range of -40 degrees C to +110 degrees C.
