KRATON Polymers and Isoltema Team Up to Form Advanced Roofing Solutions

SpecialChem / Aug 28, 2002

Isoltema, an Italian manufacturer of self-adhesive roofing membranes, is using KRATON D-KX220 polymer and KRATON D-1184 polymer in its Elotene waterproofing strips, and Ekobit waterproofing and sealing tapes. D-KX220 was used in the development of roofing products for the Colonial Stadium in Melbourne's Docklands in Australia. Developed by the KRATON Polymers Business, Houston, D-KX220 and D-1184 have improved the viscosity and adhesion of Isoltema's waterproofing strips, and waterproofing and sealing tapes at both high and low temperatures. Additional benefits include increased stability and performance over time and enhanced resilience to sun exposure, all of which lead to reduced levels of roofing sag and lower related maintenance costs. "During the development of our products, we reviewed most of the polymer-based modifiers available to our field," said Maurizio Bertozzi, general manager for Isoltema. "KRATON polymers far outweighed the competition in terms of performance in the asphalt mix and compatibility with our production systems."
