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 low temperature flexural properties when used in the rubber compound
