Product Description
Regalite™ R1100 CG Hydrocarbon Resin is a cosmetic grade resin derived from petrochemical feedstocks. This water-white, thermoplastic resin is fully hydrogenated providing excellent stability. It has excellent solubility and compatibility with non-polar ingredients in cosmetic applications, contributing both adhesion and gloss.

d50% resin solids in toluene
eMMAP: Mixed Methylcyclohexane-Aniline Point. Cloud point is measured in a 1:2 mixture of methylcyclohexane and aniline. The higher the MMAP, the less aromatic the resin.
fMolecular weight measured by Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) using polystyrene standards.

Regalite™ R1100 CG Hydrocarbon Resin is pastillated and packed in polyethylene bags of 20 kg net.


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.

Regalite™ R1100 CG Hydrocarbon Resin material will remain within product specification limits, as mentioned given under the heading "Product Specifications", for a period of at least twelve months after shipment from Eastman production facilities in the Netherlands, provided storage conditions outlined in this data sheet are observed.

However, as we can neither anticipate the conditions under which the resin is processed nor the end use applications for which it is used, we recommend that the material be tested upon receipt.

Properties reported here are typical of average lots. Eastman makes no representation that the material in any particular shipment will conform exactly to the values given.

Eastman and its marketing affiliates shall not be responsible for the use of this information, or of any product, method, or apparatus mentioned, and you must make your own determination of its suitability and completeness for your own use, for the protection of the environment, and for the health and safety of your employees and purchasers of your products.
