Polyterpene resin is a pale, inert thermoplastic hydrocarbon resin with a low molecular weight.
This specific grade known as Piccolyte S 115, is produced from high purity beta-pinene isolated from turpentine, is characterized by its light color and color stability, low odor, and an excellent balance of adhesive and cohesive properties. (S 115 indicates that the softening point is about 115°C)
It is an outstanding tacki?er for natural rubber and is designed primarily for use in pressure-sensitive adhesives, hot-melt adhesives, coatings, and rubber compounding.
