Kraton D SBS polymers have usually a higher polystyrene content, are harder and have a more limited compatibility with tackifiers than SIS polymer. They are mostly used in hygiene and industrial adhesives but are sometimes used in PSA applications such as labels. Kraton D SBS have a wide hardness range and low viscosity. They provide excellent cohesive strength and elasticity.
Kraton D SBS are typically used in contact and hot-tack adhesive including:
