Tacolyn™ 3400 resin ester dispersion is an aqueous, 55% solids, solvent-free, anionic rosin ester dispersion prepared from a highly hydrogenated, high softening point resin. It is recommended for use in food packaging applications such as closures, lidding, and cold seal adhesives, as well as pressure sensitive adhesives that contact food. Tacolyn™ 3400 is also used in adhesives applications requiring higher temperature strength such as in high temperature masking tapes, packaging tapes, and contact adhesives.

Compatibility and Solubility

Compatible with acrylic, vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE), polyvinyl acetate, styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), polychloroprene (neoprene) and natural rubber latexes. When mixed with cationic substances, this dispersion may precipitate. When high alkaline or acidic additives are added to Tacolyn™ 3400, gross localized pH-variations should be avoided, as these can lead to destabilization and grit formation.

Storage

The useful life of this product can be affected by storage and handling conditions. This dispersion will remain within product specification limits for at least 243 days from date of manufacture from an Eastman production facility provided that storage conditions are observed. The recommended storage temperature range is 50°-100°F. This resin dispersion may be irreparably damaged if frozen. Accordingly, all shipments in cold climate areas are made in insulated or heated carriers. It is recommended that strict control of inventory be observed at all times, taking care that the oldest material is used first.
