Kraton polymers are widely used to formulate thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) compounds in a variety of applications ranging from industrial to consumer care. These high-performance polymers are engineered to enhance the capabilities of a broad range of end products and applications. These benefits are derived from the precise control of molecular structure and the formulation expertise of our R&D team. Polymers that can be formulated include:
