Isobutylene is a colourless flammable gas and is used as a monomer for the production of various polymers such as butyl rubber, polybutene and polyisobutylene. The most important application of butyl rubber is the manufacture of tyres for cars and other vehicles. Other applications of butyl rubber, polybutene and polyisobutylene are lubricants such as motor oils, adhesives, sealants and coatings. Another major use of isobutylene is the production of methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and ethy-tert-butyl ether (ETBE) which are gasoline blending components for cleaner burning fuels. Isobutylene is also used for the production of anti-oxidants, fragrances and gas odorization products.
