Picco A140 Hydrocarbon Resin
Picco™ A-140 Hydrocarbon Resin is a low molecular weight, amber colored thermoplastic resin produced from petroleum-derived monomers that is polymerized under conditions that control its softening point within a narrow range. It is characterized by its excellent resistance to acids, alkalis and moisture. It shows good color stability and, when formulated with elastomers, a good balance of flex, tear, tack and adhesion properties. In styrenic block copolymer-based adhesives Picco A-140 preferentially associates with the styrenic end blocks, producing higher cohesion at temperatures up to 70°C without affecting tack and adhesion properties. Picco A-140 is particularly indicated as a processing and reinforcing agent in rubber compounds and as binder in protective coatings. It is also utilized in EVA-based woodworking adhesives.
