Kristalex™ 1120 hydrocarbon resin is a water clear, highly color stable, nonpolar, low molecular weight thermoplastic polymer. This resin is compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and is soluble in many common organic solvents. It is indicated for use in plastics modification, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and caulks. In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex™ 1120 is compatible with EVA grades with up to 18% vinyl acetate and is useful in formulating low-color adhesives with improved high temperature resistance. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ 1120 preferentially associates with the styrenic endblocks, producing higher cohesion at temperatures up to 70°C without affecting tack and adhesion properties. Kristalex™ 1120 complies with many FDA regulations for applications involving direct contact with food. Compliance with a given regulation in a specific situation should be verified prior to use in a food contacting application.

PAMOLYN™ 125 Oleic Acid

Brand: PAMOLYN

Applications: Other Paints & Coatings Applications, Chemical Building Blocks & Intermediates, Sealants & Caulks

Product Families: Organic Acids

Chemical Family: Organic Acids

End Uses: Paint Manufacturing, Ink Manufacturing, Adhesive Manufacturing

Pamolyn™ 125 oleic acid is a high purity, commercial grade oleic acid derived wholly from a tall oil fatty acid source. It is a low odor, pale, color stable, low titer, oily liquid. Compared with commercial grades from other vegetable or animal sources, Pamolyn™ 125 oleic acid is high in oleic acid and low in saturated acid content. Unlike tallow source oleic acids, it is free of lower molecular weight acids. All fatty acids in Pamolyn™ 125 oleic acid are of C18 origin. Pamolyn™ 125 oleic acid is designed for a broad range of applications. Typical uses, when it is converted to soaps, sulfonated products, and other derivatives, include: textile processing aids, automotive additives and mold lubricants, agents for production of synthetic rubber, and surfactants for a variety of other uses.

PAMOLYN™ 210 Linoleic Acid

Brand: PAMOLYN

Applications: Other Paints & Coatings Applications, Chemical Building Blocks & Intermediates, Sealants & Caulks

Product Families: Organic Acids

Chemical Family: Organic Acids

End Uses: Paint Manufacturing, Ink Manufacturing, Adhesive Manufacturing

Pamolyn™ 210 linoleic acid is a high purity grade of linoleic acid derived wholly from a tall oil fatty acid source. It is a pale, oily liquid with low odor, and is highly resistant to discoloration on exposure to heat and light. Because of the near absence of saturated fatty acids, this product has exceptionally low titer. Pamolyn™ 210 linoleic acid contains a low percentage of unsaponifiables and resin acids. Pamolyn™ 210 linoleic acid is designed especially for the protective coatings industry for production of pale, color retentive, fast drying alkyds and epoxy resin ester coatings. Other uses for this linoleic acid are in applications that require both wetting and drying properties, such as printing ink vehicles and caulking and sealant compositions.
