Packaging Information

Metalyn™ 200 methyl ester of rosin is supplied in 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

+
Storage

Inside storage 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. Metalyn™ 200 methyl ester of rosin 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.
