Product Description
Foral™ AX-E Fully Hydrogenated Rosin is a thermoplastic, acidic resin produced by hydrogenating rosin to an exceptionally high degree. It is the palest, most highly stabilized rosin commercially available. Compared with Staybelite™ Resin-E Partially Hydrogenated Rosin, a hydrogenated rosin long established and widely used for its pale color and high oxidation resistance, Foral™ AX-E Fully Hydrogenated Rosin has better initial color and color retention, and even greater resistance to oxidation. It is especially indicated as the tackifier and resin modifier in solvent adhesives and hot-melt applied coatings and adhesives that must excel in these properties.
