Tacolyn™ 3100 resin ester dispersion is an aqueous, 55% solids, solvent-free, rosin ester dispersion prepared from the pentaerythritol ester of hydrogenated rosin. It is recommended as a tackifier for acrylic latex polymers used in label, tape, and construction applications including clear film label applications. Tacolyn™ 3100 is highly hydrogenated and promotes high temperature performance in waterborne PSAs.

Compatibility and Solubility
Compatible with acrylic, vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE), polyvinyl acetate, styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), polychloroprene (neoprene) and natural rubber latexes. When mixed with cationic substances, this dispersion may precipitate. When high alkaline or acidic additives are added to Tacolyn™ 3100, gross localized pH-variations should be avoided, as these can lead to destabilization and grit formation.
Available in lined fiber drums (445 lbs/202 kg net wt.), disposable totes or tank trucks. Keep container closed to prevent formation of dried film on container walls. If dry filming occurs, filter product before use.
The useful life of this product can be affected by storage and handling conditions. This dispersion will remain within product specification limits for at least 274 days from date of manufacture from an Eastman production facility provided that storage conditions are observed. The recommended storage temperature range is 50°-100°F. This resin dispersion may be irreparably damaged if frozen. Accordingly, all shipments in cold climate areas are made in insulated or heated carriers. It is recommended that strict control of inventory be observed at all times, taking care that the oldest material is used first.
