Personal Care
 
KVIS polyisobutylene's are pure, clear and practically non-toxic polymers.
 
Personal care products like lip-gloss and roll-on deodorants can be formulated with polyisobutylene.
 
Because of high purity KVIS polyisobutylene's, it can be used to replace fatty esters and other expensive oils in the personal care product formulations.
 
Inks
 
The rheological property of inks can be controlled by addition of Polyisobutylene's, resulting in improved processing and print image. Traditionally used naphthenic oil carriers used in printing inks can be replaced by polyisobutylene's, and have been used to improve the image quality and feel of carbon papers.
 
polyisobutylene's can be used in preparing ink followers that aid in uniform flow of ink in gel / ball point pens.
 
Paper Coating
 
Treatment of paper with polyisobutylene emulsion in combination with a variety of materials such as latex, alkyd-coumarone indene and rosin ester dispersion, asphalt emulsions and acrylic and methacrylate polymer and copolymer emulsions can impart moisture and vapour resistance.
 
These treated papers are flexible and offer excellent physical and optical properties.
 
Polyisobutylene can be used to plasticize and toughen the waxes used for paper coatings.
