Picco™ A-10 Hydrocarbon Resin is a low molecular weight, resinous plasticizer derived largely from aromatic petroleum feedstock. Picco™ A-10 Hydrocarbon Resin is characterized by its chemical inertness, excellent resistance to salts, acids, alkalies, water and brines and its solubility in a wide variety of hydrocarbon solvents. Picco™ A-10 Hydrocarbon Resin is indicated for use as a binder in lithographic (cold set) inks and as plasticizer, softener and tackifier for other resins and elastomers used in rubber compounding and various adhesive systems.

Packaging & Availability

Packaging Information

Picco™ A-10 Hydrocarbon Resin 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.

Picco™ A-10 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.
