Chevron Phillips Chemical Company: Chevron Phillips Chemical Company: Improved resin grade

Chevron Phillips Chemical has announced the commercial availability of a new grade of its K-Resin® styrene butadiene copolymer (SBC). New K-Resin® RK54 SBC provides low-temperature shrinkage control and conformity for shrink labels while maintaining a high degree of clarity, gloss, and stiffness.

This recyclable resin is also said to provide a 20% to 30% higher yield advantage than other shrink sleeve label materials permitting more labels to be produced per lb of resin. With proper surface treatment films made with RK54 SBC are well suited to flexo- or gravure-printing with solvent-based inks.
