Foral™ 105-E ester of hydrogenated rosin is a pale, thermoplastic ester resin derived from pentaerythritol and a highly stabilized rosin. Like Foral 85-E ester of hydrogenated rosin, which is produced from the same unique oxidation-resistant rosin, Foral 105-E offers advantages as the tackifier or modifier resin in various adhesives and coating compositions. In these applications, both resins exhibit resistance to oxidation and to discoloration caused by heat and aging. Foral 105-E has a substantially higher softening point and is therefore indicated where a harder resin is desired. It is also used in UV cured acrylics to improve adhesion to low surface energy substrates when high tack is not needed.
