Springs Creative, Kraton Announce Relationship To Drive NEXAR® Polymer Technology

ROCK HILL, S.C. — August 5, 2014 — South Carolina-based Springs Creative Products Group is pleased to announce an agreement with Houston-based Kraton Performance Polymers through which it will assist Kraton in marketing efforts to develop new applications for Kraton’s proprietary moisture activated NEXAR cooling technology in targeted bedding, foam and performance textile applications. The marketing assistance agreement was executed on April 10th, 2014. Kraton is a global leader in specialty polymers that enhance the performance and appeal of a wide variety of products that touch our daily lives.

In specific applications, Kraton’s NEXAR Polymers provide an enhanced and sustained cooling effect as long as moisture vapor is present; produces greater than 2° F temperature reduction on most fabrics; and provides overall improved comfort. Additional benefits of NEXAR include

  • Moisture activated cooling technology;
  • Easily applied to many fabrics;
  • Demonstrated durability to repeated home laundering cycles; and
  • Smart technology that works when you need it.

“Customers demand performance, and by entering into this agreement with Kraton, Springs Creative will be able to help Kraton expand its market penetration with one of the most advanced and unique cooling technologies on the market,” says Kim Hall, VP of Sales, Springs Creative Specialty Products Group. “We are really excited about this relationship with Kraton and the opportunities it presents for both Kraton and Springs.”
