The building and construction (B&C) industry continues to enhance its standards for performance, durability, safety, aesthetics, maintenance requirements, energy efficiency, and reduction of material use and waste, and at the same time aims to lower cost. Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) help B&C developers, engineers and manufacturers meet these challenges. In this webinar, we will discuss how Santoprene™ TPV delivers long-term performance and helps achieve sustainability goals across various applications from expansion joints to window and glazing seals. We will also highlight several new products: the 591 series, a family of extrusion grades specifically designed for the construction market; 9101-80E100, which contains post-consumer recycled material; and, 121-60E400, a high resiliency grade for EPDM replacement.
