Global Styrenic Block Copolymers

Global Styrenic Block Copolymers

Styrenic block copolymers (SBCs) have a molecular structure that incorporates hard polystyrene segments (blocks) with soft rubber segments such as butadiene, butyl, and isoprene. Although a wide variety of commercial grades are available, styrenic block copolymers generally fall into five broad types.

The three most significant SBCs, in order of importance, are:
 styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS), which alone accounts for about 75% of the
market
 styrene-isoprene-styrene (SIS)
 styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene (SEBS)

The fourth and fifth types are used to a much lesser extent:
 styrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene (SEPS)
 styrene-ethylene-ethylene/propylene-styrene (SEEPS)

SEBS, SEPS, and SEEPS are generally classified as performance products because they have fully vulcanized elastomeric backbones, which increases price but also improves performance.

Recently, suppliers have focused on the development of new products based on hydrogenated versions of SBCs, such as SEBS, which lead to higher performance that can justify higher margins and increased market penetration.
