Kraton Dl175BT polymer features a tailored structure that translates into a wider formulating window and supports sprayable/low VOC contact adhesives
Where a contact adhesive
is used, pressure will be required after application to allow the surfaces to bond.
HOUSTON -- Kraton Polymers LLC (Kraton), a leading global producer of engineered polymers, announces a series of new formulations designed to support lower Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) requirements and reduce costs associated with contact adhesives
