Kraton styrenic block copolymers have long been preferred for overmolding comfort grips on consumer products ranging from toothbrushes and razors.

The materials combine the processability of thermoplastics with the feel of crosslinked rubbers.  To meet changing customer requirements, Kraton has continually improved its product offering for this market by introducing tougher materials grades with a variety of hardness values and better mechanical characteristics.

Soft touch Kraton® D SBS compound grades for personal grooming products have easy to process viscosities, retain consistent color and exhibit excellent adhesion to the rigid plastic substrates such as polypropylene that are used for handles.  New Kraton® G SEBS polymers provide improved chemical and UV resistance along with better tensile properties for molding grips with increased durability and ergonomic feel. 

 

 

 

Kraton G SEBS polymers are second-generation styrene block copolymers that feature outstanding durability and strength along with good processing stability. Formulations can be made with these polymers.
