Performance in Medical Applications
Kraton Performance Polymers develops and produces advanced, engineered synthetic elastomers designed to meet the specific requirements of medical product manufacturers. The polymers and polymer-modified systems perform like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) but are formulated without PVC, phthalates, plasticizers and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a result, the Kraton materials do not have the health concerns associated with plasticizers and are environmentally sound as well as recyclable.
Engineering Technology Forum
Please join us at the Engineering Technology Forum as Kraton Performance Polymers promotes the use of highly polymer modified binders in high performance thin resurfacing for pavement preservation. Through our work with the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) at Auburn University, our test results show using our binder in all layers, allows the user to achieve at least 50% longer life despite being 20% thinner.
