Product Categories

Globalprene SEBS is a hydrogenated form of SBS with a higher content of 1,2-vinyl structure. After hydrogenation, the copolymer is composed of polystyrene (S) - polyethylene (E) - polybutylene (B) - polystyrene (S), hence abbreviated as SEBS.

GLOBALPRENE SEPS is a hydrogenated styrenic block copolymer containing isoprene segments. After hydrogenation, the copolymer is structured as polystyrene (S) - polyethylene (E) - polypropylene (P) - polystyrene (S), abbreviated as SEPS. Hydrogenation eliminates the double bonds in the diene molecules, significantly reducing susceptibility to degradation by factors such as Oxygen, Ozone, and UV. As a result, SEPS exhibits an improved service temperature range and excellent transparency.

GLOBALPRENE SIS is a styrene/isoprene block copolymer. It is used in hot-melt adhesives and pressure-sensitive adhesives.

GLOBALPRENE SBS NOE (Non-Oil-extended) is a type of styrene/butadiene block copolymer. It is a non-oil-extended material that does not contain process oil.

GLOBALPRENE SBS OE (Oil-Extended) is a type of styrene/butadiene block copolymer that contains process oil with different percentages.

Application Scope

Hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives can form a coating in the molten state and bond rapidly under light pressure after cooling. It can be easily removed without contaminating the surface of the adhered substrate. Hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives consist mainly of a thermoplastic elastomers (TPE, e.g. SEBS, SBS, SIS), tackifier, antioxidant, and filler. Incorporating saturated TPEs such as SEBS and SEPS, derived from the hydrogenation of SBS or SIS, into hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives enhances their resistance to oxidation, UV radiation, and heat, improving overall weather resistance. Thermoplastic elastomers can also be used to produce solvent-based adhesives with lower viscosity,good tack ,holding power and balanced adhesion performance

The use of thermoplastic elastomers(TPE) to modify conventional asphalt can extend its service temperature, improve its mechanical properties, increase the cold temperature flexibility of the asphalt, and improve its aging performance. When used in asphalt modification, in combination with the proper asphalt mix, can improve road safety by increasing the road's load-bearing capacity. When used in roofing and waterproofing applications, TPE-modified asphalt bonds better to the structure durable and better heat resistance to help reduce the high cost of maintenance and repair.

TPE is commonly used to toughen engineering plastics. TPE-modified plastics have improved impact strength and low-temperature resistance.TPE can be applied in film application, has increased impact strength, improved gas barrier properties and is widely used in food and beverage packages. Adding a compatibilizer and polar plastic to TPE improves the compatibility of TPE with dissimilar materials. For example, the addition of maleic anhydride (MAH) grafted SEBS and TPU, can use in over-molding ,nylon modifciation and plastics compounding.

SEBS has good compatibility with PP and PE,good for PP/PE modifciation. Grafted SEBS is mainly used in the modification of engineering plastics such as polyamide (PA), ABS, polycarbonate (PC) and PET to increase the toughness of the material. It is also used as a compatibilizer in the modification of engineering plastics to improve the miscibility between materials. The addition of even a small amount of grafted SEBS significantly improves the toughness of engineering plastics and increases their impact strength. The combination of grafted SEBS with other SEBS polymers results in stable copolymers with excellent oxidation and UV resistance.

SBS is widely utilized in TPR shoe soles, offering a versatile alternative to vulcanized rubber and polyvinyl chloride shoe materials. Known for its outstanding elasticity, vibrant color options, effective anti-slip properties, and durability against wear, SBS shoe soles also boast excellent flexing endurance and low-temperature resistance. Compared to other materials, SBS shoe soles exhibit significantly higher friction coefficients on both asphalt and wet surfaces. Additionally, SBS is environmentally friendly, as waste shoe soles can be recycled and reprocessed. Available at moderate prices, SBS shoe soles come in various styles, including original color designs, colorful dual-color options.
