Published on 2005-04-04. Author : SpecialChem

HOUSTON -- KRATON Polymers is increasing production capability for KRATON G polymers at its Belpre, Ohio, and Berre, France, plants in response to rising demand from customers in the adhesives, compounding, packaging, and polymer modification sectors.

The Company is implementing capacity increases for KRATON G polymers by nearly 10 kt. These debottlenecks are a series of low cost capital investments, which will primarily allow capacity growth to support the global growth in our important market segments.

KRATON polymers are a range of versatile, high-performance materials. They offer a variety of processing and application advantages, such as increased processing stability, oxidation, and weather resistance, high temperature performance and 'soft-touch' over-molding. KRATON Polymers, the market leader in styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS) products and styrene-ethylene-propylene-styrene (SEPS) products, commercialized the first grades of these products in 1972. Consumer goods, automotive parts, rigid and flexible packaging materials, roofing materials, sealants, and polymer modification are among the diverse applications that can benefit from KRATON G polymers.

The KRATON Polymers Group of Companies is the world's leading manufacturer and supplier of styrenic block copolymers.
