Chemical stability of KVIS Polybutenes is much superior to unsaturated mineral oil because of its high saturation. KVIS Polybutenes have a very low acid value (is a measure that indicates the concentration of free fatty acid in the oil) and the value stands good in circumstances where the product is stored for extensive periods. The degree of modification from ultraviolet rays, heat or oxygen is demonstrated by the acid value. Only severely high temperatures can cause decomposition.

     Chain Structure

KVIS Polybutenes have more consistent and similar molecules compared to conventional Polybutenes

Possible variations in conventional Polybutene, consisting of N - butene and I - butene
KVIS Polybutene only consisting of
I - butene
     Solubility and Compatibility

KVIS Polybutenes are soluble in Non-Polar Solvents and insoluble in Polar Solvents. Sometimes, polymer molecular weight can influence solubility.

Solubility of KVIS in various solvents
O : Soluble, △ : Partially Soluble, X : Insoluble
