Aliphatic resin for use with less polar elastomers and polymers
Developing formulations for low polarity systems can be a challenge. The newest product offering from TOTAL Cray Valley — Wingtack 102 — is an aliphatic resin with a high softening point and lower molecular weight distribution than typical 100˚C hydrocarbon resins.
This provides excellent compatibility with many aliphatic polymers, resulting in formulations with superior stability.
Wingtack 102 has 35 per cent lower volatiles than other similar hydrocarbon resins, giving it exceptionally low odour and low product volatility.
Coupled with its low colour and novel softening point/molecular weight relationship, Wingtack 102 can improve the performance of pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesive applications.
