Polyisobutylene
(C4H8)n
heavy liquid; medium liquid; and low liquid (depending on the molecular weight of PIB in the solution, ranging from 300 to 250000 amu).
Polyisobutylene is mainly employed as oil and lubricant additive; hot-melt adhesive; chewing gum base; emulsion stabilizer; detergent viscosity corrector; gloss aid in lipsticks; binder; film/coating agent; pharmaceutical carrier; and pressure sensitive adhesive. It is also used in butyl rubber manufacturing; production of sealants; heat/electrical insulators; food packaging; sealing tapes; and tire production;
polybutene thiophosphonate; propoxylates; polyisobuteneamine; and polyisobutenylsuccinic anhydride.

Polyisobutylene (a.k.a. PIB, Butyl Rubber) is a thermoplastic polymer/elastomer, with high viscosity, and for that, its main use is in the lubricant industry. Being extremely viscous also allows polyisobutylene to be used in a variety of products, such as gums, detergents, adhesives and many others. PIB is the core component in butyl rubber (about 98% PIB and 2% isoprene by weight), its second main use. It’s worth noting that it is the only rubber like elastomer that is gas impermeable.
