• Wire Rope Lubricants

    Polybutenes have the desired properties for a wire rope: Inert Non-drying Non-toxic Good adhesion Effective lubrication Corrosion protection With applications in lubrication ropes for bridges, undersea cables, elevator ropes, etc.

  • Gear Oil

    Gear oils are normally split into 2 different oils: Automotive (manufacturing) Industrial (processing) Automotive CERTAIN PARAMETERS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED WHEN SELECTING GEAR OIL: Gear design Gear material Conditions of operation THE MOST IMPORTANT PARAMETERS OF THE GEAR OIL: Viscosity Thickness Viscosity index Low pour point Good shear stability To obtain a control leakage of the… Read more »

  • Viscosity modifier

    The viscosity modifier produced from the polybutenes has the advantage that shows the change of viscosity in accordance with the temperature of the lube oil. Properties Automotive and industrial oils often need thickening agents to achieve the correct viscosity. Polybutenes (PIBs) often replace bright stocks to obtain the required viscosity. They also have the advantage… Read more »

  • Compressor Oil

    Properties For there are no sulphur and impurities in Polybutenes, dangers like anticatalyst may be eliminated. End User Applications Compressor oil is used in high pressure processing, for example, Low Density Poly-Ethylene (LDPE).

  • Two-Stroke Oils

    In general, the market of two-stroke engine oils is stable in Europe and the US. In Asia and Africa it is increasing. A two-stroke engine is required to operate on a one-pass, total loss basis. The oil is introduced into the engine either pre-mixed with the fuel or by direct injection using a demand pump…. Read more »

  • Sealants, Caulks & Putties

    Properties Sealants, caulks and putties are materials that are inserted into a gap or joint to prevent the ingress of water, wind, dirt or other contaminants. Polybutene is used in sealants, caulks and putties as a tackifier and plasticiser with excellent non-drying UV stability and tackiness. End User Applications The main uses of sealants, caulks… Read more »

  • Rubber

    Properties Polybutene is used as plasticiser for vulcanised elastomers containing both natural and synthetic rubbers. They: Have a superior compatibility while formulising rubber compounds Are typically used as adhesives (plasticizer) for the rubber base Offer good plasticity and adhesion even when using small amounts of Polybutene Improve physical properties such as tensile strength, elongation and… Read more »

  • Paints & Coatings

    Properties KEMAT Polybutenes: are high quality plasticizers and give outstanding durability to different coatings extend the service life of the coating give excellent corrosion protection in hydrophobic environment improve adhesion to many substrates have excellent flow on many substrates are clean burning can decrease the price of the coating formulation increase the viscosity provide high… Read more »

  • Lubricants

    Lubricants based on Polybutenes Lubricants can be mineral oils or synthetic oils. Synthetic oils can be based on PAOs, PIBs or esters. PIBs are used in different lubricants depending on their qualities as well as the requirements. End User Applications PIBs/PAOs can be mixed to create the optimum balance: VI / price. This is used… Read more »
