HOUSTON (Aug. 13)—Kraton Polymers plans a 25-percent capacity increase at its styrenic block copolymer plant in Paulinia, Brazil, by year-end 2004 to meet growing demand for its Kraton D-brand thermoplastic elastomers in Latin American, European and U.S. markets. The products are used principally in the adhesives, compounding, footwear and asphalt industries. "This expansion reinforces our commitment to bring innovative, high-performance products to market quickly to maintain supply and meet customer needs on a global scale," Garret Davies, Kraton vice president of the Americas, said in a prepared statement.
