PICCOTAC
Piccotac™ 9095 hydrocarbon resin is a low molecular weight, slightly aromatic-modified aliphatic C5 tackifier designed for the adhesives industry. This light colored resin is compatible with styrenic block copolymers, EVA, and many polar elastomers. It is widely used with other tackifier resins, such as rosin esters and C9 hydrocarbon tackifiers to improve performance. It is primarily used in hot melt adhesives and pressure sensitive adhesives. Piccotac 9095 is stabilized by the addition of antioxidant.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage

Due to the thermoplastic behavior, pastillated and flaked resins may fuse, block or lump. This can be accelerated under any of the following conditions: 1) above ambient temperature 2) prolonged storage 3) pressure, e.g., stacking pallets, or a combination of these conditions. This is particularly applicable for low softening point resin grades. In order to maintain the flake or pastille shape, we therefore recommend storing the material in a temperature-controlled area, be careful with stacking material or applying pressure and preventing prolonged storage. It should be noted that lumping does not have a negative impact on the product specifications. Due to the nature of the product, claims regarding lumping cannot be accepted.


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. The useful life of this product can be affected by storage and handling conditions. When stored in the original unopened container in an enclosed area and protected from moisture, extreme temperatures and contamination, the shelf life of this product is estimated to continue to meet applicable sales specifications for two years from the date of manufacture. Shelf life is a guide not an absolute value. The product should be reanalyzed for critical properties at the end of its shelf life to see if it meets specification for use.
