Buna® BL XP 7409 is a copolymer of butadiene and styrene containing 48 ,5% of bounded styrene of which 34,5% present in a block form. It is produced by solution polymerization process using an alkyl-lithium initiator having high purity and light colour. The high content of block styrene makes these polymers a good choice for the manufacturing of shoes soles and in rubber heel formulations with increased hardness without sacrificing abrasion resistance. Due to its thermoplastic behaviour at higher temperatures, Buna® BL XP 7409 is suitable for the manufacturing of injection moulded rubber goods.
