Polybutene is a polymer which is derived from isobutylene. Polybutene is a colorless, odorless and tasteless pale yellow viscous liquid. It is differentiated based on grades by characteristic such as molecular weight and the grades with high molecular weight are known to have increased viscosity. Polybutene is available in various grades in the market. It is also known as a liquid oligomer which has application as a plasticizer for various applications in the market. It is used as a plasticizer for high molecular weight polymers such as polyethylene, lubricants and carriers among others.
Polybutenes are utilized as lubricant for metallurgical oil, 2-cycle engine lubricant, compressor oil, viscosity index enhancer. It is also used as metallurgical oil.The demand of wrap films gets increased as industries develop and household income increases. Wrap films used to be a mixed product of LDPE, EVA, but is being substituted to LLDPE.
