Product Description
Piccotac™ 1020 hydrocarbon resin solution is an aliphatic, low molecular weight, liquid resin. Derived mainly from olefin monomers of petroleum origin, this pale neutral resin is characterized by its resistance to moisture, good heat and light stability, and excellent balance of tack and adhesive properties. It is stabilized with antioxidant.




It is designed primarily for use in pressure sensitive adhesives, hot melt adhesives and coatings. It is compatible with SIS block copolymers, natural rubber, polyisoprene, butyl rubber, and APO elastomers.

Storage
The useful life of this product can be affected by storage and handling conditions. When stored in the original unopened container in an enclosed area and protected from moisture, extreme temperatures and contamination, the shelf life of this product is estimated to continue to meet applicable sales specifications for two years from the date of manufacture. Shelf life is a guide not an absolute value. The product should be reanalyzed for critical properties at the end of its shelf life to see if it meets specification for use.

Compatibility and Solubility
Compatible at all ratios or in limited but practically useful proportions, with natural and synthetic rubbers, EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) copolymers, APAO (amorphous poly-alpha-olefins), SIS (styrene-isoprene-styrene) and SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) block copolymers, polyethylene polymers, polypropylene polymers, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes; PIB (polyisobutene), OBC (olefinic block copolymer), and metallocene-catalyzed polyolefins.


Soluble at all useful proportions in aliphatic, aromatic, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Insoluble in alcohols and water.
