Product Description
Piccotac™ 8095 hydrocarbon resin is a moderate softening point, aromatic modified C5 resin. This light colored resin is designed to provide better odor and more cohesion than rosin esters for hot-melt packaging applications.

Compatibility and Solubility
Compatible in useful proportions, with natural and synthetic rubbers, low vinyl-acetate concentration EVA (ethylene-vinyl-acetate) copolymers, SIS (styrene-isoprene-styrene) and SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) block copolymers, amorphous poly-alpha olefins, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes. Soluble at all useful proportions in aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters and ethers. Insoluble in alcohols, glycols and water.

Packaging
Piccotac™ 8095 is supplied in 50, 1000, and 2000 lb bags, and molten rail cars (42k lbs/truck).

Storage

Due to the thermoplastic behavior, pastillated and flaked resins may fuse, block or lump. This can be accelerated under any of the following conditions: 1) above ambient temperature, 2) prolonged storage, 3) pressure, e.g., stacking pallets, or a combination of these conditions. This is particularly applicable for low softening point resin grades.

In order to maintain the flake or pastille shape, we therefore recommend storing the material in a temperature-controlled area, be careful with stacking material or applying pressure and preventing prolonged storage.

It should be noted that lumping does not have a negative impact on the product specifications. Due to the nature of the product, claims regarding lumping cannot be accepted.

Resins are prone to gradual oxidation, some more so than others. This could result in darkening and/or it could have an adverse effect on the solubility of the resin in organic solvents or on its compatibility with polymers. Accordingly, it is recommended that strict control of inventory be observed at all times, taking care that the oldest material is used first.
