Polyterpene resin

Piccolyte S 125

Piccolyte S 125 polyterpene resin is a pale, inert thermoplastic hydrocarbon resin with a low molecular weight.

Key properties

Piccolyte S 125 polyterpene resin, produced from high purity beta-pinene isolated from turpentine, is characterized by its light color and color stability, low odor, and an excellent balance of adhesive and cohesive properties.

It is an outstanding tackifier for natural rubber and is designed primarily for use in pressure-sensitive adhesives, hot-melt adhesives, coatings, and rubber compounding.

Applications

  • Tackifier resin in pressure-sensitive and hot melt adhesives
  • Modifier resin for rubber compounds
  • Wax modifier for investment castings
  • Used as a stiffening and waterproofing agent in textile sizing applications
  • Component in SBR-based can sealants
