Product description

Piccotac™ 7590 hydrocarbon resin is an aromatic-modified, aliphatic tackifier resin with a unique combination of light color, low odor and narrow molecular weight distribution. This resin is an excellent tackifier for all styrene-based thermoplastic elastomers, and in particular SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene and SEBS (styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene) block copolymers. It is also compatible with APAO (amorphous poly-alpha-olefins), metallocene-catalyzed polyolefins, SBR, EVA, and many polar elastomers. Due to its low odor and very good thermostability, Piccotac 7590 is suggested as tackifying resin for high quality hot melt and pressure sensitive adhesives.</br></br></br></br></br></br></br></br> Note: Piccotac 7590 is not on the DSL for Canada.
