Kristalex™ 3085 hydrocarbon resin is a water-white, highly color stable, nonpolar, low molecular weight thermoplastic polymer. 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.</br></br></br> </br></br></br> In EVA-based hot melt adhesives, Kristalex 3085 has useful compatibility with EVA grades with up to 30% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with good low temperature properties. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives, Kristalex 3085 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing lower melt viscosity while maintaining room-temperature cohesion without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
