Exxon™ butyl rubber (IIR) ensures excellent air-barrier, weathering resistance, aging resistance, vibration damping and good compression set.
Exxon™ chlorobutyl rubber (CIIR) provides an improved compression set and better resistance to heat, ozone and flex fatigue compared with regular butyl rubber, while maintaining the same excellent air-barrier properties.
Exxon™ bromobutyl rubber (BIIR) provides faster and more stable cure through additional carbon-carbon cross-linking compared with regular butyl rubber, while maintaining the same excellent air-barrier properties.
