Elasto Proxy, custom-fabricator of industrial rubber products and plastic parts, is announcing help for material buyers and product designers who need help during compound selection. As Elasto Proxy explains in an on-line article and video, butyl rubber has valuable properties for seals and gaskets.

Butyl Rubber Types and Applications

Butyl is a synthetic rubber that is impermeable to gases and moisture, and that provides resistance to heat, ozone, and chemicals. Halogenating isobutylene isoprene rubber (IIR) with either chlorine (chlorobutyl) or bromine (bromobutyl) is common for automotive, industrial, and other applications.

As Elasto Proxy’s technical article explains, examining these applications can help material buyers and product designers to determine if butyl is the right rubber and, if so, which type of butyl is required. For example, rubber stoppers made from bromobutyl have lower drug turbidity.
