Styrolux T

Styrolux® T is a new developmental, clear and tough styrene-butadiene copolymer (SBC) designed specifically for high performance film extrusion and shrink film applications. Styrolux® T has been developped for blending with a second SBC component, Styrolux® S, which inceases the stiffness of the film and improves the storage stability of film reels (reduced natural shrinkage).

Key Features

  • High clarity and toughness
  • Maximum shrinkage up to 80%
  • Very good shrinkage control
  • Very low gel content

Applications

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