Foralyn™ hydrogenated rosin and rosin esters are a resin family based on stabilized rosin for adhesives and coatings. They are available with a softening point range from liquid to 110°C.

The hydrogenation of Foralyn™ improves its compatibility with adhesive base polymers, in contrast to non-hydrogenated rosin-resins, which results in improved adhesive performance.  In particular Foralyn™ hydrogenated rosin resins impart superior adhesion and excellent cohesion to adhesives based on styrenic block copolymers and acrylic polymers, especially at higher temperatures.

Foralyn™ 90 and Foralyn™ 110 are of special interest due to their exceptional light color, thermal color stability and low oxygen uptake. Foralyn™ 5020-F CG is particularly suitable for cosmetic, personal care and fragrance applications.
