    What Are Solid Butyl Rubber Rolls?

    Solid Butyl rubber is a synthetic rubber made up by blending isobutylene with isoprene, this creates a property known as Polyisobutylene, commonly known as PIB.

    These solid butyl rubber rolls of material offer many desirable properties including excellent thermal stability and resistance to UV and weathering, it also has an impermeable structure required for air retention or gas sealing applications, but is not recommended for use with petroleum, oils or chlorinated solvents. Solid butyl rubber rolls are often taken by customers, giving them the flexibility to convert them into a range of usable products as and when required.

    Why Use Solid Butyl Rubber Rolls?

    Solid butyl rubber rolls and the components cut from them are frequently used in demanding applications that involve high pressure gasses such as compressed air pipelines, air retention or high pressure vacuum sealing. Butyl rubber is known for its thermostable properties which partnered with the weather and ozone resistance make butyl it excellent for both internal and external use.

    The material is flexible with good resistance to flex cracking, abrasion, impact and tear. Due to its low gas and vapor permeability, butyl rubber is a popular material used in the production of gas masks, as a waterproofing material as pond and tank liner or roofing membranes and as vibration impending shock mounts and bushings.

    Benefits Of Solid Butyl Rubber

    • UV & Ozone resistant
    • Impermeability To Gases, compressed air and moisture
    • Shock and anti-vibration properties
    • Wide operating temperature range
    • Excellent sealing properties
    • Flexible with resistance to Flex cracking, abrasionTear and impact

    Advantages Of Using Solid Butyl Rubber Rolls

    Customers benefit from using Solid butyl rubber as the material offers many advantageous properties, characteristics and uses. These solid butyl rubber rolls of material are flexible even at low temperatures with a wide operating temperature of -40°C to +140°C, and are pre-manufactured in a range of thicknesses ready for use as lining large surface areas or for converting into smaller components such as gaskets and washers.

    Solid Butyl materials resists degradation caused by UV, weathering , heat, moisture and some acids and alkaline chemicals. It’s structure is impermeable to gas and compressed air, making it an excellent choice for air retention, therefore often used for creating gas and air seals inner tubes, vacuum sealing, tubeless tyres, inner tubes, sports-ball bladders and in the production of gas masks.

    It can also be used for a range of indoor and outdoor waterproofing purposes such as pond/tank liners or roofing membrane. ASG and customers who cut their own parts will benefit from a higher yield and therefore a better cost by using solid butyl rubber rolls for their conversions.
