NEW KRATON™ HT1200
Kraton Performance Polymers announces a new SIS polymer, Kraton™ HT1200 for hot-melt and solvent based adhesive applications. The technology is unique in part because it is a highly branched (more than 10 arms) star polymer and offers the lowest PSC of the Kraton SIS product line. The performance attributes include: excellent solvent resistance in crosslink systems, good adhesive properties, high tack, and resistance to higher temperatures compared to other SIS copolymers. The new innovation also has a high loss factor that is important for formulations designed for noise, vibration and harshness.
