Product Description

Kristalex™ 3115LV Hydrocarbon Resin is a water-clear, color stable, low molecular weight thermoplastic hydrocarbon polymer with low organic volatile content. Based on purified 8 - 9 carbon aromatic monomers, this resin is indicated for use in plastics modification, hot melt adhesives and coatings, sealants and caulks. Kristalex™ 3115LV is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and is soluble in many common organic solvents. In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex™ 3115LV is compatible with EVA grades with up to 18% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with improved high temperature resistance. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ 3115LV preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher cohesion at temperatures up to 70°C without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
