Compatibility and Solubility
Compatible at all ratios, or in limited but practically useful proportions, with natural and synthetic rubbers, EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) copolymers, SIS (styrene-isoprene-styrene) block copolymers, low molecular weight polyethylene, 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™ 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.

Storage
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, as mentioned 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.
