Product Description

Kristalex™ F85 hydrocarbon resin is a water-clear, color-stable, low molecular weight, thermoplastic hydrocarbon polymer. Based on purified 8 - 9 carbon aromatic monomers, this resin is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, polymers 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™ F85 is compatible with EVA grades with up to 30% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with good low temperature properties. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ F85 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing lower melt viscosity without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
