Product Description
Permalyn™ 5110-C synthetic resin is the pentaerythritol ester of gum rosin. It is produced by a special process that yields a low odor, low acid number resin. It is suggested for use as a modifier for film-formers, elastomers, and waxes in various adhesives and protective coatings where pale color and minimal odor are required.

Because of the extremely large surface area, flaked forms of resins are prone to gradual oxidation, some more so than others. This could result in darkening and /or could have an adverse effect on solubility in organic solvents. It is strongly recommended that strict control of inventory be observed at all times, taking care that the oldest material is used first. Recommended storage is in original packaging, dry, free from contamination, below 30°C.

Flaked forms of low to medium-softening point resins may fuse, block, or lump:
(1) during hot-weather months,
(2) if stored near steam pipes or other sources of heat, and
(3) upon prolonged storage and compression.

Permalyn™ 5110-C will remain within product specification limits for a period of at least 18 months from the date of manufacture, provided recommended storage conditions are observed.
