About SBC

SBC belong to the family of thermoplastic elastomers. SBC are consumed in bulk compared to other thermoplastic elastomers and have properties similar to rubber, though they are processed as thermoplastics. SBC are added in additives and other high-performance polymeric compounds for the formulation of the final end-products. The major end-users of SBC include the Footwear, Paving and Roofing, and Medical and Personal Care industries. SBC possess unique properties such as recyclability, elastic quality, and good flexibility at lower temperatures.
