Product description

Piccotac™ 8595 hydrocarbon resin is an aromatic-modified, aliphatic hydrocarbon resin developed for the adhesives industry. Its specific degree of modification and low molecular weight provides Piccotac 8595 with excellent compatibility in styrene block copolymers, amorphous polyolefins (APO), metallocene-polyolefins (mPE, mPP), EVA, and many polar elastomers. It is widely used to compatibilize different elastomers into a formulation to improve performance. It is primarily used in hot melt adhesives and pressure sensitive adhesives. Piccotac 8595 is stabilized by the addition of antioxidant.
