Kuraray: Comprehensive elastomer solutions and more

As crosslinkable and therefore non-migrating plasticisers they can improve the processability of rubber compounds without compromising the mechanical properties. In addition to their function as reactive plasticisers and coagents for EPDM, carboxylated KLRs can improve the adhesion to metal and the mechanical properties of silica-filled rubber compounds. Based on these characteristics, KLR is used in diverse rubber fields, from tyres to other rubber goods as well as for coatings, adhesives, and binder systems.Kuraray's range of high-performance TPE materials marketed ­under the brand names Septon and Hybrar comprises a wide range of styrene block copolymers (hydrogenated/non-hydrogenated, diblock/ triblock).
