Product description

Plastolyn™ 290LV hydrocarbon resin is aromatic, water-white, very low organic volatile content and very high softening point for use in polymer modification, adhesives, overprint lacquers, coatings and a variety of other applications. Recommended as a flow modifier in such polymers as polyvinylchloride (PVC), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and styrenic block copolymers. Its water white color and low organic volatiles combined with superior heat and ultraviolet light (UV) stability compared with conventional C9 hydrocarbon resins, provide formulators a new level of quality without sacrificing competitiveness.
