Product Description
Kristalex™ 3100 hydrocarbon resin is a water clear, highly color stable, nonpolar, low molecular weight thermoplastic polymer. This resin is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and is soluble in many common organic solvents. It is indicated for use in plastics modification, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and caulks. In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex™ 3100 is compatible with EVA grades with up to 18% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with good low temperature properties. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ 3100 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher room-temperature cohesion without affecting tack and adhesion properties. Kristalex™ 3100 complies with many FDA regulations for applications involving direct contact with food. Compliance with a given regulation in a specific situation should be verified prior to use in a food contacting application.
