Product Description

Kristalex™ 3105SD Hydrocarbon Resin is a water clear, highly color stable, nonpolar, low molecular weight thermoplastic polymer with low organic volatile content. This resin is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and is soluble in many common organic solvents. It is indicated for use in plastics modification, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and caulks. In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex™ 3105SD is compatible with EVA grades with up to 18% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color, low odor adhesives with good low temperature properties. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ 3105SD preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher room-temperature cohesion without affecting tack and adhesion properties.

Kristalex™ 3105SD complies with many FDA regulations for applications involving food contact. Users of this product should determine its compliance for their specific application prior to use.
