Electrical Insulators


Polybutene is typically used in cable jelly compounds, cable insulation materials and cable oils due to its properties listed below:

  • Superior electrical insulation
  • Non-conductive electrical
  • Thermal stability
  • Oxidation stability
  • Waterproof
  • Low power factor
  • No impurities
  • Low chloride content
  • Low temperature flexibility
  • Self-healing
  • Very low chloride

End User Applications

  • Telecom cables
  • Power cables
  • Telecom insulation and jacketing

KEMAT Polybutenes

Butyl rubber plasticised with KEMAT Polybutenes can also be used as an electrical insulator combined with a flame retardant.

KEMAT Polybutenes have the widest range of molecular weights (MW) on the market to match any need in formulation in the field electrical insulators.
