Description: Tuftec™ is a hydrogenated styrene/butadiene block copolymer. As a high-performance styrenic thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), it is characterized by outstanding weatherability and thermal properties, as well as superior elastomeric characteristics.

It is a product of continuing leadership in polymer chemistry and process technology, marked by the original introduction of the Tuftec™ H series in 1987 as the world’s second saturated styrenic TPE to enter commercial production, preceded only by Shell Chemical of the U.S., by the introduction of the Tuftec™ M series as the world’s first reactive TPE, and most recently by the introduction of Tuftec™ P, the latest series in an array of world-leading TPEs.

The new Tuftec™ P series meets advanced and diversifying market needs. Through site-selective hydrogenation of its styrene/butadiene/styrene (SBS) polymer chain, the P series elastomers are intrinsically superior to conventional SBS in thermal properties and to saturated styrenic elastomers (SEBS) in processability and low-temperature properties. This selective hydrogenation technology also enables polymer design for enhanced overall performance and specific characteristics unattainable in other styrenic elastomers.
