Total Cray Valley Introduces New Aliphatic Resin for Use with Less Polar Elastomers and Polymers
Exton, Pa., June 30, 2020 — Developing formulations for low polarity systems can be a challenge. The newest product offering from TOTAL Cray Valley — Wingtack® 102 — is an aliphatic resin with a high softening point and lower molecular weight distribution than typical 100 ˚C hydrocarbon resins. This provides excellent compatibility with many aliphatic polymers, resulting in formulations with superior stability.
Wingtack 102 has 35% lower volatiles than other similar hydrocarbon resins, giving it exceptionally low odor and low product volatility. Coupled with its low color and novel softening point/molecular weight relationship, Wingtack 102 can improve the performance of pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesive applications.
For rubber applications, Wingtack 102 acts as a low-volatile processing aid. It can also be used for belts, hoses and tire applications as an effective replacement for aromatic-containing oils. Wingtack 102 has low volatility, low chlorides and low ash, making it ideal for use in more demanding applications such as wax investment casting.
