Polyterpene resin

Piccolyte A 125

Piccolyte A 125 polyterpene resin is a pale, inert, low molecular weight, thermoplastic resin.

Key properties

Piccolyte A 125, produced from high-purity alpha-pinene isolated from turpentine, is characterized by its light color and color stability; high gloss and gloss promotability; acid, alkali, and water resistance; and wide compatibility and solubility. It is a superior tackifier for SBS and other thermoplastic block copolymer elastomers in adhesive systems.

Applications

  • Tackifier resin in pressure-sensitive and hot melt adhesives
  • Gloss promoting agent in paints, varnishes, and coatings
  • Deterrent to moisture and corrosive effects of acids and alkalis in sealants, caulks, and rubbers
  • Wax modifier for investment castings
  • Modifier resin for rubber compounding
