Butyl rubber is also called Isobutylene-isoprene, or IIR, and it was developed in the 1940s as a synthetic rubber.
  • Because of its low gas permeability and its low resilience, it is perfect for products such as high-pressure/vacuum-sealing applications, vibration damping, and shock damping.
  • It is very resistant to ozone, heat, and weathering, and you can even use it to dilute both alkalis and acids. However, it is not a good product to use in petroleum- or mineral-based fluids, and you can often find it in seals, O-rings, bottle closures, diaphragms, liners, gaskets, inner tubes, and even speaker surrounds.
