Butyl sheeting stands out for its excellent impermeability to gases. This characteristic, together with its flexibility and weather resistance, makes it a habitually-used rubber for numerous industrial applications. Butyl sheeting is also essential for seals and protection in chemical industries where high concentrations of mineral acids and alkalis occur such as phosphate plants, fertilisers, caustic soda, etc.
Mechanical, physical and chemical properties
Benefits & Advantages
- Butyl has very low permeability to air and other gases.
- Excellent resistance to ozone, oxidation and sunlight.
- Excellent temperature range of -45ºC to +130ºC
- Butyl has very low resilience which makes it ideal for vibration damping and shock absorption applications.
- Butyl has moderate resistance to abrasion and compression set.
- Resistance to chemicals; resistant to most inorganic products. Highly resistant to mineral acids, alkalines and aqueous acids. Not recommended to use in contact with oils, or hydrocarbon solvents.
