Solution Styrene-Butadiene Block Copolymers
Styrene-butadiene block copolymers are polymerized in solution and present different structures, linear, radial and multiarm. They are free flowing materials that show different viscosities to adapt their properties to the multiple applications where they can be used in. Lower linear molecular weight grades offer very good flowability, are appreciated for their transparency and easy processability. Radial grades show higher melt strength, and offer higher mechanical properties with a high modification performance. Multiarm grades show a combination of low viscosity with temperature resistance. This performance make them suitable for a wide range of applications such as technical compounding, adhesives and sealants, bitumen modification for road pavements and waterproofing membranes. They are also used in shoe sole applications and polymer modification. They comply with different food contact applications. Typical physical aspects can go from fluffy crumbs to powder versions.
