Performance in Medical Applications

Kraton Performance Polymers develops and produces advanced, engineered synthetic elastomers designed to meet the specific requirements of medical product manufacturers.  The polymers and polymer-modified systems perform like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) but are formulated without PVC, phthalates, plasticizers and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  As a result, the Kraton materials do not have the health concerns associated with plasticizers and are environmentally sound as well as recyclable.

First HiMA Trial Completed in St. Petersburg, Russia

HOUSTON, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. (NYSE: KRA), a leading global innovator and producer of styrenic block copolymers (SBCs), today announced the successful completion of the first road trial of highly modified asphalt (HiMA) technology in St. Petersburg, Russia, which will open to traffic in mid-2015.

HiMA is an innovative SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) polymer technology developed specifically for asphalt paving. The SBS polymer loading is more than twice that of ordinary modified asphalt, yet the mixes are readily workable, easy to lay in the field, extremely durable and weather resistant. Due to the typical inclement winter weather in St. Petersburg, many vehicles are outfitted with studded tires, which can quickly degrade asphalt pavements. The high polymer loading of HiMA technology makes the asphalt more like an asphalt-modified rubber, as opposed to a rubber-modified asphalt, increasing its resistance to road fatigue and deformation and extending its service lifetime.
