Product Description
Piccotac™ 9095-E hydrocarbon resin is a low molecular weight, slightly aromatic-modified aliphatic C5 tackifier designed for the adhesives industry. This light colored resin is compatible with styrenic block copolymers, EVA, and many polar elastomers.

It is widely used with other tackifier resins, such as rosin esters and C9 hydrocarbon tackifiers to improve performance. It is primarily used in hot melt adhesives and pressure sensitive adhesives. Piccotac™ 9095-E is stabilized by the addition of antioxidant.

Compatibility and Solubility
Compatible at all ratios or in limited but practically useful proportions, with natural and synthetic rubbers, low-vinyl acetate EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) copolymers, EnBA (ethylene n-butyl acetate) copolymers, APAO (amorphous poly-alpha-olefins), SIS (styrene-isoprene-styrene) block copolymers, SIBS (styrene-isoprene/butadiene-styrene) block copolymers, SEBS (styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene) block copolymers, SEPS (styrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene) block copolymers, polyethylene polymers, polypropylene polymers, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes, PIB (polyisobutene), OBC (olefinic block copolymers), mPE (metallocene-catalyzed polyethylene), mPP (metallocene-catalyzed polypropylene), and TPE (thermoplastic elastomers).
Soluble at all useful proportions in aliphatic, aromatic, and chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters and ethers, and t-butyl acetate. Insoluble in alcohols, glycols and water.

Piccotac™ 9095-E Hydrocarbon Resin is pastillated and packed in polyethylene bags of 20 kg net, and supplied on shrink-wrapped pallets of 50 bags (1000 kg) each, from Eastman facilities in the Netherlands and from warehouses located in Europe.

Flaked and pastillated forms of resins may fuse, block or lump under any of the following conditions: (1) in hot weather climates (2) if stored near steam pipes or other sources of heat and (3) upon prolonged storage. Storage at temperatures above 30°C should be avoided. Inside storage in a temperature-controlled area is necessary in order to prevent problems, such as lumping. 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.

Piccotac™ 9095-E Hydrocarbon Resin material will remain within product specification limits 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.
