Article-Kraton targets PVC replacements at NPE2012

Kraton Performance Polymers (Houston, TX) will feature its styrenic block copolymers or "SBCs" as PVC replacements at NPE2012 (April 1-5; Orlando, FL).

Kraton will show (booth 3900) new elastomers that replace PVC in medical and wire and coating applications at NPE2012. New higher flow SBCs are also replacing polyurethane and PVC-coated fabrics used in durable upholstery applications. Another PVC target is automotive interior slush molded soft skins. "Our slush molding manufacturing process is a PVC alternative that provides the automotive industry with a major technology and performance leap to address performance, system cost and environmental responsibility necessary to move forward and succeed," the company said in a press release.
