Kraton contributes to the circular economy by enabling a holistic approach to plastic product life cycle. We offer versatile multi-resin compatibilization in wide range of applications for virgin materials, bioplastics and post-consumer and industrial plastic recycling streams.
Kraton styrenic block copolymers show excellent recyclability, enabling recyclable end product design, increased post-consumer resin (PCR) content and repeated reuse of recycled plastics across different markets. Our products are successfully used for upcycling post-consumer and industrial waste streams, including typically non-compatible materials and difficult-to-recycle engineering polymers. Besides significant product properties enhancements, our thermoplastic polymers enable the shift from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and silicones to safer alternatives.
