chandigarh Updated: Jun 14, 2014 20:18 IST

Indian Oil's Panipat refinery and Petrochemical Complex (PRPC) has recently launched C4 Raffinate for dispatch to poly isobutylene (PIB) manufacturers across the country.

A truck loaded with C4 Raffinate was flagged off by Tapan Kumar Basak, executive director in charge of PRPC Complex, last week.

PIB is a synthetic rubber or elasometer, which is gas impermeable and can hold air for a long time. It is used in making things such as inner liner of tyre, basketball, volleyball, inflatable life jackets and several other pharmaceutical, medical and cosmetic products.
