New Aliphatic Resin Created for Use with Less Polar Elastomers and Polymers
TOTAL Cray Valley recently developed Wingtack 102, an aliphatic resin with a high softening point and lower molecular weight distribution than typical hydrocarbon resins. Wingtack 102 is compatible with many aliphatic polymers, resulting in formulations with increased stability.
Wingtack 102 has 35% lower volatiles than other similar hydrocarbon resins, giving it exceptionally low odor and low product volatility, according to the company. Coupled with its low color and novel softening point/molecular weight relationship, Wingtack 102 can improve the performance of pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesive applications.
