BRP manufactures high grade commercial butyl rubber available in .019 – .5” thicknesses and conforming to Type BA. Our butyl rubber products is available in 50, 60 and 70 durometers. Made from a blend of isobutylene with isoprene polymers, butyl rubber is an excellent general purpose material that can be used for many applications.
Butyl rubber is a great option for shock absorption applications. This flexible material offers exceptionally low gas and moisture permeability in addition to outstanding heat, weather, ozone and age resistance. Butyl rubber also protects against chemical attack, flexing, abrasion and tearing.
Butyl rubber provides good chemical resistance and holds up in most industrial applications. Although it is resistant to phosphate ester based hydraulic fluids, it is not recommended for use with petroleum oils and fluids.
