  • MATERIALS: Kraton Opens Up Innovation Center

    A pilot facility in Belpre, Ohio, has been opened by Houston-based Kraton to produce a wide range of SBC-type developmental materials.

  • ADDITIVES: SBC Modifier For Rigid PP Goods, Polyolefin Fibers

    New styrenic block copolymer serves as modifier for injection-molded PP parts, and more.

  • MATERIALS: ECTFE Film Resins for Photovoltaic Modules

    Two new ECTFE resins mark Kraton's entry into front-sheet applications for photovoltaic modules, expanding the company's reach in this market.

  • MATERIALS AT NPE: All Market Sectors Benefit from Large Crop of New Materials

    Higher-performance and easier processing PE film resins for packaging, a one-pass crosslinked PE for photovoltaic (PV) wire and cable, several higher-performing nylons and TPEs, “greener” plastics, and enhanced styrenic and PC resins are among the new materials that made their debut at the big show in Orlando, Fla., last month.

  • Four Key Markets Drive Material Advances At K 2010

    Last fall’s K 2010 fair in Germany drew dozens of materials suppliers to show off hundreds of new products, aimed especially at packaging,medical, automotive, and electrical/electronics.

  • New Styrenic TPEs for Wire, Packaging & Medical Uses

    WEB EXCLUSIVE: At NPE in Chicago, Kraton Polymers LLC, Houston, highlighted two pairs of new styrenic block copolymers.

  • New Styrenic TPEs for Wire, Packaging & Medical Uses

    At NPE in Chicago, Kraton Polymers LLC, Houston, highlighted two pairs of new styrenic block copolymers.

  • TPEs Move Up the Performance Scale

    This first of two articles on directions in TPE development focuses on styrenic, copolyester, polyamide, and TP urethane elastomers. The following article covers olefinics—TPOs, TPVs, and POEs.

  • SBC Resists High-Heat Compression Set

    A new styrenic block copolymer from Kraton Polymers, Houston, reportedly offers reduced compression set and improved stress relaxation at temperatures above 70 C (158 F). Molecular weight of Kraton G1633 is 50% higher than that of standard SBCs and its compression-set value approaches that of some olefinic TPVs.

  • SBC Has Improved High-Heat Compression Set

    WEB EXCLUSIVE A new styrenic block copolymer from Kraton Polymers, Houston, improves the compression set and stress relaxation of styrenic TPEs at temperatures above 70 C (158 F). Molecular weight of Kraton G1633 is 50% higher than that of standard SBCs and its compression-set value approaches that of some TPVs.

  • 'Soft-on-Soft' Is Newest Option In Soft-Touch Molding

    It's hailed as a breakthrough for soft-touch injection molding: Collaborative efforts by three companies have resulted in the commercialization of an SEBS-based TPE vehicle handle in which a very soft (28 Shore A) surface layer is coinjected onto a substrate of a firmer—but still soft and rubbery—60 Shore A compound.

  • NPE 2000 News Wrap-Up: Engineering Thermoplastics

    NPE 2000 saw the debut of many new nylons, ranging from 6 and 66 types that are tougher, easier to process, and lower in density to a brand-new class of branched nylons with outstanding physical and rheological properties and a long-carbon-fiber grade that combines high electrical shielding with flame retardance.Also new at the show were extrusion-grade and reinforced PPS, new PPS alloys, and new sources of high-heat, reinforced polyphthalamide, PEEK, and syndiotactic polystyrene compounds.

  • NPE News Wrap-Up: Materials

    New materials at NPE 2003 target automotive, appliance, and packaging sectors. Engineering thermoplasticsdominate the news, but there were also severalnew TPEs and a few polypropylene introductions.

  • New-Generation SEBS Has Processing Advantages

    Kraton Polymers has launched a new styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene (SEBS) elastomer family that delivers better flow, lower warpage, and greater adhesion to other thermoplastics.
