SEPTON™ is a series of high performance thermoplastic elastomers developed by Kuraray Co. Ltd., using its unique Isoprene Technology. In terms of structure, SEPTON™ is a series of hydrogenated styrenic block copolymers (HSBC) with styrene based hard block & a di-ene based soft block, it exhibits rubber-like properties over a wide range of temperatures and hardness. Prior to processing, the polystyrene end blocks are associated in rigid domains. In the presence of heat and shear stresses such as during processing, the polystyrene domains soften and becomes flowable. On cooling, the polystyrene domains returns to its original form and harden, locking the elastomeric network in place. This physical phenomenon provides SEPTON™, high tensile strength and elasticity. SEPTON™ being a thermoplastic, is recyclable.

HYBRARTM is a styrenic block copolymer having vinyl-polydiene soft block developed by Kuraray Co. Ltd. using its unique Isoprene Technology. HYBRARTM is a series of thermoplastic rubbers which offers high vibration damping properties due to its glass transition temperature (Tg) near room temperature. This allows HYBRARTM for use in damping applications that are not favorable with Kuraray’s SEPTONTM product series.
Both hydrogenated and non-hydrogenated grades of HYBRAR™ are available. In addition to the superior vibration damping properties, hydrogenated grades also exhibit excellent miscibility with polypropylene, and may be used to produce blends with excellent transparency, flexibility and mechanical properties without the need for plasticizers while being friendlier to environment. HYBRARTM can be processed in various forms including film, sheet, tube etc.
Similar to many rubbers, HYBRARTM can be vulcanized. Cured HYBRARTM foams exhibits low Compression Sets& good elasticity.
It is commonly used in medical bags and tubing, sporting goods, automotive products, and construction.
Ø High Vibration Damping Properties at Room Temperature
Ø High Affinity to Polyolefins & Styrenics.
Ø Curable like Vulcanized Rubber.
