Technical Details & Test Data+
Compatible at all ratios, or in limited but practically useful proportions, with nitrocellulose, ethylcellulose, melamine- and urea-formaldehyde resins, polyethylene, shellac and carnauba wax. Limited compatiblity with casein, polymethyl methacrylate, polyvinyl acetate chloride, polyvinyl butyral, natural rubber, synthetic rubber. Incompatible with cellulose acetate, cellulose acetate butyrate, polystyrene and zein.
Soluble in alcohols, esters, ketones, chlorinated solvents, and aliphatic, aromatic, or terpene hydrocarbons. Insoluble in water. Solubility parameters, 50% resin concentration: 7,0-10,6 in Class I solvents - weakly hydrogen-bonded; 7,4-11,3 in Class II solvents - moderately hydrogen-bonded; 9,5-14,5 in Class III solvents - strongly hydrogen-bonded.
Packaging & Availability+
Abitol™ E resin hydroabietyl alcohol is supplied in 190 kg open-head steel drums, on pallets containing 4 drums each, from Eastman production facilities in the Netherlands and from warehouses located in Europe.
Storage & Handling+
Inside storage and "first in first out" inventory control is recommended. Storage at temperatures above 30°C should be avoided. 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.
Abitol™ E resin hydroabietyl alcohol material will remain within product specification limit for a period of at least twelve months after shipment from Eastman''s 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.
