A plastics company with a compelling P/E ratio.It has several interesting new products including a polymer for use making the interior panels for cars. This new polymer is 30 to 40% lighter which should appeal to car companies seeking to achieve better fuel economy. If that weren't enough, Kraton's new polymer is molded at lower temperatures. This equates to cost/energy savings as well.This is just one example of Kraton's pipeline. Maybe that is why they are expecting to eventually have 20% of revenue coming from newly developed products.
