Product Description

Picco™ A140 Hydrocarbon Resin is a low molecular weight, amber colored thermoplastic resin produced from petroleum-derived monomers. Picco™ A140 is characterized by its excellent resistance to acids, alkalies and moisture. It shows good color stability and, when formulated with elastomers, a good balance of flex, tear, tack and adhesion properties.

This resin is particularly indicated as processing and reinforcing agent in rubber compounds and as binder in protective coatings.

Picco™ A140 Hydrocarbon Resin is polymerized under conditions that control its softening point within a narrow range.
