Kristalex 1120 Hydrocarbon Resin
Kristalex™ 1120 hydrocarbon resin is a water-white, 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 1120 has useful compatibility with EVA grades with up to 30% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with improved high temperature resistance. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex 1120 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher cohesion at temperatures up to 70°C without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
