Soluble in alcohols, esters, ketones, chlorinated solvents, and aliphatic, aromatic, or terpene hydrocarbons. Insoluble in water. Solubility parameters, 50% resin concentration: 7,0-10,6 in Class I solvents - weakly hydrogen-bonded; 7,4-11,3 in Class II solvents - moderately hydrogen-bonded; 9,5-14,5 in Class III solvents - strongly hydrogen-bonded.
Abitol™ E Hydroabietyl Alcohol material will remain within product specification limit for a period of at least twelve months after shipment from Eastman's production facilities in the Netherlands, provided storage conditions outlined in this data sheet are observed. However, as we can neither anticipate the conditions under which the resin is processed, nor the end use applications for which it is used, we recommend that the material be tested upon receipt.
