KIBITON TPE

KIBITON® thermoplastic elastomer is often used for bitumen modification.

KIBITON® is a copolymer of styrene and butadiene. It shows some of the characteristics of thermoset rubber such as elasticity and low temperature performance with the advantages of a thermoplastic such as melt processibility. 

Its segmented and radial molecular structure allows it to have the same flexible and physical properties of general rubber without the vulcanization process. Its middle segment is similar to rubber and has excellent elastic restoring force, processing flowability, weather resistance, and can be injection molded similar to that of thermoplastics. It can be widely applied for shoe soles, toys, asphalt modifications, mechanical products, plastic modification agents, and adhesive agents.

KIBITON® TPE is an SBS resin.
