Coatings

Clear and colored rubber-like, peelable coatings formulated with Kraton  G SEBS polymer adhere to painted metal or plastic surfaces, adding reliable protection against chipping, scratching, water spots and corrosion.  When the protective or decorative coating is no longer required, or a new decorative appearance is desired, the material is easy to peel off and leaves no residue.

The popular, temporary coatings are used by consumers all around the home to resurface metal fixtures, change the color of furniture or protect it from scratching, and give a new “look” to worn garden furniture and hand tools.  The solvent-based, road- damage resistant coatings can also be used to customize or change the appearance of vehicles.   

Removable, protective and decorative solvent-based coatings formulated with Kraton G SEBS polymers can be applied via spray, brush and dipped.  As a result, the products are faster and easier to handle than PVC or polyurethane films.  In service, the coatings produce and retain a high quality surface finish, with the elongation and elasticity to remain flexible over time.  The coatings resist cracking even at temperatures below-freezing and exhibit excellent moisture resistance.
