Product description

Piccotac™ 7590-N Hydrocarbon Resin is an aromatic-modified, aliphatic hydrocarbon resin developed for the adhesives industry. Its specific degree of modification provides Piccotac 7590-N Hydrocarbon Resin with an excellent compatibility with styrene-based thermoplastic elastomers, and in particular SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene and SEBS (styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene) block copolymers. It is also compatible with APAO (amorphous poly-alpha-olefins), metallocene-catalyzed polyolefins, SBR, EVA, and many polar elastomers. Due to its low odor and very good thermostability, Piccotac 7590-N Hydrocarbon Resin is suggested as tackifying resin for high quality hot melt and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives. Piccotac 7590-N is stabilized by addition of antioxidant.
