Product Description
Piccolastic™ D125 hydrocarbon resin is an high molecular weight, light colored, polar, thermoplastic hydrocarbon resin. Derived from pure styrene monomer, it exhibits to a limited degree, properties normally associated with higher polymeric resins - i.e., toughness and resiliency. Although it is hard and tough, it is readily workable, retains some wetting qualities, and provides excellent resistance to water, chemicals, shock, oil, and grease. It can be used as a modifier for rubber and plastic compounds used in shoe construction and as a binder for xerographic toners. Piccolastic™ D125 is also useful to formulate glues used for solvent welding of styrenic plastics. In styrenic block copolymer-based systems Piccolastic™ D125 associates strongly with the styrene endblocks, reducing melt viscosity and cohesion without greatly affecting tack and adhesion properties. Piccolastic™ D125 is compatible with EVA grades with up to 20% vinyl acetate and will improve heat resistance and increase the melt viscosity of the system. Piccolastic™ D125 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.
