The SPRINTAN® Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber product range currently comprises four non-staining types with a range of styrene and vinyl contents. They are all produced by anionic solution polymerisation using an organo-lithium initiator. SPRINTAN® SLR 4602 is partially coupled and bears a GENERATION 2 functionalisation for improved polymer/filler interaction with carbon black as well as with silica.
