Crosslinking Technology

September 24, 2001
KRATON POLYMERS
This company has developed a new technology that can enhance the high-temperature performance of certain adhesives and sealants by crosslinking acid-functional styrenic block copolymers with aluminum acetylacetonate. This same technology also provides increased resistance to solvents and plasticizers. The technology gives customers three crosslinking choices: ultraviolet, electron beam and chemical curing.
