Low = 300 – 1500 MW

Low molecular PIB (PIB 4, 6, 8, 24, 30, 32) NSF certified

The low molecular PIB types are clear, bright of color. Furthermore these types are predominantly composed of aliphatic mono-olefins.

The low molecular PIB types are often used in the following applications:

  • Cosmetics
  • Lubricants
  • Plasticizer
  • Stretch films

 

PIB is an abbrevation for polyisobutylene. Polyisobutene is used to enhance manufacturing processes and product effectiveness.

The extensive PIB line ranges from low viscosity/ low molecular weight grades (300 daltons/ 15 cSt at 40C) to high viscosity/ high molecular weight grades (4200 daltons / 13,000 cSt at 100C).  These products are non-toxic, and are registered to comply with all requirements for cosmetics and food grade applications.
