What is Kraton G?
Kraton G polymers are second generation styrenic block copolymers with a hydrogenated midblock of styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene (SEBS) or styrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene (SEPS). They are intended for use where UV resistance, high service temperature, and processing stability are essential.
Is TPE harmful?
Another safe alternative to PVC is TPE Material (Thermo Plastic Elastomer). This is a non-toxic, biodegradable, plasticizer-free material designed to decompose in a landfill.
What can TPE be used for?
TPEs are used in a variety of applications in the automotive, medical, construction, electrical, appliance, packaging and industrial markets – and new uses for TPEs are being developed all the time.
What is the difference between elastomer and polymer?
The main difference between polymer and elastomer is that a polymer is any large molecule which is built with small units called monomers whereas an elastomer is a special type of polymer which has elastic property.
What does Kraton chemical do?
Kraton develops, manufactures and markets biobased chemicals and specialty polymers that deliver exceptional value and enhance the lives of people all over the world.
Who owns Kraton?
DL Chemical Co., Ltd.Kraton / Parent organization
Is TPE safe for babies?
The TPEs are safe for babies because the materials are strong and, thus, minimize the risk of babies accidentally swallowing the small individual pieces of a product.
Does TPE contain lead?
Mat manufacturers often promote TPE as being free of bisphenol-A (BPA), PVC, lead, phthalates, dioxins, and other problematic chemicals, but they may still leach synthetic estrogens, even if they aren’t exposed to high temperatures, humidity, and sunlight (as yoga mats often are, particularly in Bikram).
