Kraton to debut Nexar polymer family at NPE

Jun '09
Kraton Polymers LLC (Kraton), a leading global producer of engineered polymers, will host booth No. W131029 at the International Plastics Expo (NPE) in Chicago, Il, June 22 – 26, 2009, where it will showcase its innovative, eco-friendly and cost efficient polymer families. Kraton will debut its newly commercialized Nexar polymer product family at NPE. The Nexar polymer family is uniquely designed for high performance breathable fabrics, water transport, filtration and separation applications.

Kraton will introduce the first two polymer grades in the product family: Nexar MD9200 and MD9150. Each is offered as a polymer in a solution or a polymer membrane. Nexar MD9200 boasts an ion exchange capacity (IEC) of 2.0 meg/g while Nexar MD9150 has an IEC of 1.5 meg/g. In addition, Kraton will present a paper at ANTEC on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 11:00 am entitled, Nexar Membranes for High Water Transport Rate Applications.

“We have placed a profound emphasis on delivering clean, sustainable and cost-effective solutions to the market and we plan to highlight the full breadth of our innovation and product capabilities at NPE,” said David Bradley, Chief Operations Officer. “We have spent decades enhancing our Kraton portfolio with versatile products, such as our new Nexar polymer and our bicomponent fiber technology. We are very excited about the game-changing potential of these new products.”

Kraton's bicomponent fiber technology has drastically changed the landscape in the nonwovens industry. Its elastic meltblown grades allow customers, who do not have bicomponent fiber technology, to replace the elastic film in the current laminated construction. The resulting spunbond-melt blown-spunbond (SMS) laminate has the flexibility to be produced in a single step process, which significantly reduces manufacturing costs.

Bradley added, “Frost & Sullivan recently recognized our pioneering innovation with the 2009 North American Technology Leadership of the Year Award. We were honored for developing a new generation of styrenic block copolymer (SBC) grades, which are highly suitable for high-speed processing in nonwoven manufacturing.”

Kraton will also feature Kraton G1643 and Kraton G1645 at NPE. These polymers offer cost saving and green alternative to competitive products currently available. Already in commercial use, Kraton G1643 is a durable material that is highly compatible with polypropylene (PP), featuring excellent clarity and improved resistance to blushing and cracking.

It offers manufacturers the convenience of adding the modifiers at the machine, thus providing a total system cost savings. It is suitable for a broad range of functionalities, including injection molding, sheet extrusion and blow molding applications, where high clarity and excellent impact strength are required for building durable parts in applications such as housewares, medical devices, automotive and consumer packaging. Kraton G1645 is approved by the FDA for use in direct food contact applications without any conditions.
