About Polyisobutylene Market

Polyisobutylene (PIB) is a commercial polymer that finds a number of applications in various industries on account of its thermal stability, good flexibility and impermeability to gases. In addition, it has high resistance to acids, alkalis and salts. PIB, a synthetic rubber is used in the manufacture of inner tubes of tires, adhesives, agricultural chemicals, caulks, sealants, paper & pulp and chewing gum among others.

Polyisobutylene is used in the manufacture of inner tubes of tires, adhesives, agricultural chemicals, caulks, sealants, paper & pulp, and chewing gum, among others. Furthermore, its derivatives are used as additives in lubricating oils and motor fuels to reduce the generation of oil mist. It can also be used as a thickening agent in lubricants. Polyisobutylene is used for damp proofing and maintenance of roof membranes. The increasing applications of polyisobutylene are expected to drive the market over the next few years.
