Product description

Foral™ 85-E ester of hydrogenated rosin is a very pale, thermoplastic ester resin derived from glycerol and a highly stabilized rosin that has outstanding resistance to oxidation, and to discoloration caused by heat and aging.

Foral 85-E can be used as a tackifier resin in various types of adhesives, and in protective and barrier-type coatings that require a high degree of color retention and oxidation resistance. It is also used in UV cured acrylics to improve adhesion to low surface energy substrates.
