Medical Compounds

Kraton styrenic block copolymer (SBC) polymers can be formulated into a variety of elastomeric compounds that are flexible, stretchable and elastic for wide range of medical devices. The compounds can be processed by all common thermoplastic processes. It can also be used to replace natural rubber, silicone rubber, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) or PVC without the potential risks of allergens, crosslinking agents, additives, hydrolysis or plasticizers. SBC polymers are used in some unique applications to impact modify PS, PP and polyamide. Additionally, it can serve as compatibilizer or tie layer, and can be formulated in a solution form to produce dipped goods and coatings.

Kraton styrene-isoprene-styrene (SIS) polymers are used in adhesives and medical patches. The oil-extended hydrogenated styrenic block copolymer (HSBC) gels are ideal for cushion, padding or medical bed.
