Butyl Technology combines our experience and continued product development to provide our users with products that match the specific applications required. Butyl Tape is chemically inert, therefore it will resist oxidation, and will remain permanently elastic, resistant to cracking, and will not degrade under Ultra-violet light. Butyl Tape can be painted. It can adhere to metal, glass, porcelain, concrete, plastic, polycarbonate, wood, and marble. We can extrude any thickness, width or length to meet your specific needs, so please speak to us if you have any specific requirements that are not covered in our current ranges.

Custom Product Development

Allow us to create a custom butyl tape to meet your specific requirements

At Butyl Technology, we take great pride in our custom and practice of developing new products in close liaison with any potential customer. This allows for our development staff to take account of a customer’s specific requirements, and either create a new formulation, or modify an existing one, resulting in a product which meets or exceeds customer expectations. Small quantity trial mixes can be produced and extruded into samples for customer evaluation, and only when full customer approval has been obtained will the new product be offered for full production runs. Nor are existing products ignored. Butyl Technology has a policy of constant development, and as raw materials change in character and availability, so Butyl Technology works to take account of these changes. The result of this on-going process is to give customers more cost-effective solutions and continuity of supply of quality butyl tapes.

Alternative backings present an on-going challenge. No longer is it enough to offer standard release paper. There are requirements for extrusion onto film, pre-printed papers, permanent liners and substrates such as plastics, textiles and foils. Materials can also be introduced into tapes as cords or nylon inserts.

There may also be a need for various profiles to be extruded. Sometimes a “U” section; maybe a “P” section. Maybe something else.

These are all demands that are regularly met by R&D at Butyl Technology, the Butyl Tape Specialists.
