Butyl Rubber Sheet

Butyl Rubber Sheet

Butyl Rubber Sheet

Rolls of solid rubber are stocked, converted and supplied by Advanced Seals & Gaskets in a diverse range of material types, one of which includes solid Butyl rubber, also known as Isobutylene-isoprene (IIR).

Solid butyl rubber is manufactured in roll form at thicknesses starting from 1mm, and at 1.4 meters wide x 10 meters long, which can be cut down and supplied in sheet form in 1 meter or 2 meter lengths.

As ASG carry out all conversion on site, we are able to cut solid butyl rubber sheets down in smaller bespoke sizes or pads, or further convert them into smaller components such as strips, washers or gaskets usually where only a small quantity is required. These conversions can be completed using one of out on-site state of the art machines such as presses, kiss-cut presses, log cutters, bandsaws or CNC machines.

    What Are Solid Butyl Rubber Sheets?

    These sheets of solid Butyl rubber are a synthetic rubber made up by blending isobutylene with isoprene, this creates a property known as Polyisobutylene, commonly known as PIB. These sheets 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 are not recommended for use with petroleum, oils or chlorinated solvents. Solid butyl sheets 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 Sheets?

    Solid butyl rubber sheets and components cut from them are often found utilised in very harsh and 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 sheets offer flexibility 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 Sheets

    There are many advantages to using Solid butyl rubber sheets, the material offers flexibility 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.

    Customers often prefer to take sheets of butyl as its easier to handle and transport compared to full rolls, and will reduce waste if only a small amount of material is required as they do not need to purchase full roll lengths of material.
