Styrolux S

Styrolux® S is a new developmental, clear styrene-butadiene copolymer (SBC) designed specifically for blending with Styrolux® T in order to enable high performance film extrusion and shrink film applications. As Styrolux® S is blended with Styrolux® T it increases the stiffness of the film and improves the storage stability of film reels (reduced natural shrinkage).

Key Features

  • Excellent clarity
  • High stiffmess
  • Very low gel content

Applications

  • Blend component for Styrolux T
  • Shrink sleeve applications
  • Label film
