Butyl Rubber

The vibration dampening rubber material

Working Temperature Range:

High: 250°F / 121°C Low: -60°F / -51°C

Butyl rubber is the ideal choice for any molded rubber product that requires vibration dampening or low gas and moisture permiability.  Molded Butyl rubber also has good resistance to heat aging, abrasion, and tearing, and is a good electrical insulator.

Advantages:

  • Excellent gas and moisture permeability
  • Excellent vibration dampening / shock absorbtion

Disadvantages:

  • Poor resistance to petroleum oils
  • Modest working temperature range
