Styrene Block Copolymers (SBC) are available for a large variety of hot-melt and solvent-based formulations. Their versatility allows tackifiers, plasticizers, antioxidants, and other additives to be blended when specific balance of performance is sought.

Use SBC to boost Building & Construction adhesives

Construction industry The use of Styrene Block Copolymer adhesives and sealants in the Construction industry is increasing in both structural and non-structural applications. They are used to bond or join dissimilar substrates such as masonry, wood, plaster, paper, glass, etc...

Styrene Block Copolymer adhesives can also address the growing use of pre-fabricated building elements and the expanding building insulation activities.

In order to be as efficient as possible, B&C adhesives have to provide durability, weathering performance, ease-of-application, as well as temperature and water resistance.

Styrene Block Copolymers deliver excellent properties for Solvent Borne contact and Hot Melt B&C adhesives versus commercial benchmarks. They bring:
  • Strength improvement;
  • Faster strength development;
  • Lower viscosity than other polymer systems; to improve productivity or lower energy operative costs;
  • Higher solids formulation capability for Low VOC's emissions ;
  • Wide range of structures for cohesive strength / viscosity balance
