Butyl Rubber (a.k.a. Isobutylene Isoprene Rubber, IIR) is an organic compound, in the (co)polymer class. IIR is a copolymer, consisting of about 98% polyisobutylene and 2% isoprene. It is a colorless (sometimes faint yellow) material, substitute to natural rubber, and began to be industrially manufactured in the 1940s, as supplies to USA troops in World War II. Currently, butyl rubber has numerous applications, being produced in several molecular weights, and IIR’s halogenated derivates have been growing in production each year.
