Regalite™ UltraPure 1100 hydrocarbon resin is a low molecular weight fully hydrogenated water-white thermoplastic resin with low targeted volatiles after aging, low odor, and low, stable amount of substances of interest as a function of aging temperature. Regalite UltraPure 1100 hydrocarbon resin has improved color stability compared to the heritage grade with the same aromatic content and softening point. Like Regalite R1100 hydrocarbon resin, this resin has excellent compatibility in a wide range of polymers and is an excellent tackifier in hot melts requiring good color retention upon aging.

Packaging & Availability

Packaging Information

Regalite™ UltraPure 1100 hydrocarbon resin is pastillated, packed in polyethylene bags of 20 kg net, and supplied on shrink-wrapped pallets of 50 bags (1000 kg) each, from Eastman’s facilities in the Netherlands and from warehouses located in Europe.

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 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.

Regalite™ UltraPure 1100 hydrocarbon resin material will remain within product specification limits, as mentioned in the sales specification sheet, 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.
