Tape non food contact
Aliphatic liquid resin used to increase tack and reduce viscosity
Excellent adhesion to styrene-isoprene-styrene (SIS) block copolymers
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 0.1 % antioxidant.
