Kristalex F115 Hydrocarbon Resin
Kristalex™ F115 hydrocarbon resin is a water-white, color stable, low molecular weight thermoplastic hydrocarbon polymer. Based on purified 8-9 carbon aromatic monomers, this resin is indicated for use in plastics modification, hot melt adhesives and coatings, sealants and caulks. Kristalex F115 is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and is soluble in many common organic solvents.
In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex F115 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 F115 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher cohesion at temperatures up to 70°C without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
