Packaging

The unique structure of VECTOR SBCs makes them useful for a variety of packaging applications. For example, wherever dissimilar materials are blended or otherwise combined, high styrene VECTOR 4411 and VECTOR 6241 are especially well suited to enhance compatibility between styrenic and olefinic polymers. The polymers allow processors to combine these materials effectively to create distinctive films with a wide range of desired properties.

VECTOR SBCs have the added advantage of improving impact and draw properties for thermoforming applications. Because VECTOR SBCs are stable, narrow molecular-weight styrenic block copolymers, they improve melt strength during processing and impact performance, and toughness and crack resistance in the final product. They blend readily with polyolefins such as low-density polyethylene and ethylene vinyl acetate resins, and styrenic polymers such as crystal and high-impact polystyrene. They can accept common oils, fillers, process aids, antiblock agents and colorants.
