EXTON, Pa.—Total Cray Valley has introduced a new aliphatic resin for low polarity systems.
The Exton-based company said its Wingtack 102 has a high softening point and lower molecular weight distribution than typical 100°C hydrocarbon resins.
Wingtack 102 has 35 percent lower volatiles than similar hydrocarbon resins, the company said, resulting in low odor and 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," Cray Valley said in a news release.
"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," the company said.
