Butynol is a synthetic rubber with properties which allow it to resist ageing due to heat, sunlight and ozone. It has excellent gas impermeability and toughness and it remains flexible even at low temperatures.

Butynol is manufactured by combining the petroleum gases isobutylene and isoprene at the extremely low temperature of –100°C. (Rubber Technology–Morton) (source: Ardex)
