Markets

Pinova provides a broad portfolio of specialty resins and chemical intermediates derived from pine stumpwood and other natural resources.

 


Choose from the following markets

Adhesives

  •  


    The heart of the Pinova product line is our extensive range of resins for use in a broad spectrum of specialty adhesive applications.

    Pinova resins are used in the following adhesive applications:

    • Pressure sensitive adhesives
    • High performance specialty tapes and labels
    • Adhesives for medical applications
    • Traffic signage and thermoplastic road marking compounds
    • Automotive assembly tapes and gasket sealants
    • Specialty hot melt adhesives
    • Aerospace adhesives

    Adhesives are typically made of a backbone polymer and a tackifier. Pinova produces tackifiers in the form of rosin and terpene resins designed to pair with a vast array of polymers to optimize adhesion and performance based on your specific application.

    Pinova’s resins span a wide range of compatibility and functionality, providing dependable and proven performance in demanding applications.

    Highly hydrogenated rosin resins with excellent color and oxidative stability are available where durability is critical. They are readily compatible with polar polymers such as acrylics. Pinova's Piccolyte family of non-petroleum based hydrocarbon resins are readily compatible with a host of non-polar polymers.


Agriculture

  •  


    Pinova serves the agricultural market by providing adjuvant raw materials that improve crop treatment efficacy. Piccolyte® AO Plus provides a number of beneficial properties to enhance the effectiveness of agricultural chemicals.

    Pinova products for the agricultural market provide:

    • Retention aid and "sticker" to prevent the active chemical from washing off the foliage
    • Superior film-forming properties and persistence; the film acts as fixative agent that is resistant to air, light and moisture penetration
    • Compatible with organic phase of agricultural actives
    • Helps protect the environment by minimizing run-off waste

    Pentalyn® FC may be used as an alternative to shellac in citrus fruit coatings. Fruit coatings based on Pentalyn FC prevent dehydration of the fruit, inhibit fruit decomposition and enhance the appearance of citrus fruits.

    Piccolyte AO Plus is compatible with a broad range of agricultural chemicals. It is a non-phytotoxic, light-colored, low-odor, viscous liquid that is easily emulsified.


Beverages

  •  

    Whether for sports drinks, carbonated beverages or other fruit drinks, Pinova products are used by customers as essential additives insuring consumer appeal and product consistency critical to successful global brands.

    Premier beverage weighting & clouding
    In recent years, citrus beverages have been among the most rapidly growing segments of the beverage market. Across a broad range of beverages, consumer appeal and consistency are key to creating and maintaining brand loyalty.

    Because these beverages use flavor oils that have a lower density than water, a “weighting agent” is necessary to ensure the emulsion’s stability over time.

    Pinova® Ester Gum 8BG beverage grade glycerol ester of wood rosin
    This versatile, taste-neutral weighting agent increases the density of the citrus oils, keeping the flavor oils evenly dispersed while also imparting a desirable degree of cloudiness - a characteristic known to enhance consumer appeal. The cloud produced by Pinova Ester Gum 8BG is superior to that of other agents. The resulting stable, cloudy beverages possess the appearance, taste and mouth feel that consumers prefer.

    Pinova Ester Gum 8BG is used in today’s top citrus beverage brands. This high performance resin is produced from USP-grade glycerol and refined wood rosin extracted from pinewood stumps. It is purified using a countercurrent steam distillation process designed exclusively for the beverage industry.

    This unique rosin ester has received global regulatory clearances for use as a beverage density adjuster.


Construction

  •  


    Pinova delivers trusted product solutions for the construction sector that are utilized to enhance materials for the rehabilitation of roads, bridges, buildings and other structures in locations around the world.

    Pinova products are used in a number of construction applications including:

    • Air entrainment in concrete, mortars and stucco
    • Asphalt emulsification for road restoration, roofing and waterproofing
    • Modification of adhesives, sealants and coatings including roofing shingles and membranes, lacquers, laminates and flooring

    Vinsol® resin - the unrivaled standard for concrete air entrainment and anionic asphalt emulsions
    Our Vinsol resins have been sold commercially for nearly 80 years and are the industry standard for concrete air entrainment and asphalt emulsification.

    Concrete air entrainment
    Vinsol enables microscopic air bubbles to be uniformly dispersed throughout the concrete matrix, providing a multitude of advantages. Vinsol resin is the recognized market leader for air entrainment.

    When neutralized and used in a concrete admixture, Vinsol resin markedly improves plasticity and workability, as well as the durability and weathering resistance of concrete.

    Additional time-proven benefits include:

    • Improved water retention and cohesiveness of mortar, effectively eliminating separation and bleeding of water
    • Lower water-cement ratios improve cost-effectiveness
    • Outstanding durability on exposure to freeze-thaw cycles and deicing agents
    • Vinsol® NVX resonate is also available as a convenient pre-neutralized powdered resinate for dry mortar and cement mixes.

    Asphalt emulsions
    The asphalt typically used in highway construction is a solid or semi-solid material that is converted to a liquid before it can be applied. This can be done by either melting the asphalt with heat, dissolving it in a solvent, or preparing a water-based emulsion.

    Pinova provides the ultimate solution for aqueous anionic asphalt emulsions. Vinsol® resin is recognized worldwide as a highly effective anionic emulsifier for asphalt/bitumen.

    Road restoration is an especially important application for Vinsol® resin. Vinsol® is used in slow-set (SS-1 type) anionic emulsions, and can also be used in selected medium-set (MS) types. Vinsol-containing emulsions are known for their stability and uniformity.

    Applications include:

    • Road, tennis court, and parking lot paving
    • Foundation, roof and siding waterproofing and sealing
    • Pipe and anticorrosive coatings
    • Slurry seals and seal coats

    Vinsol resin is the unrivaled standard for concrete air entrainment and anionic asphalt emulsions.

Fruit Coating

  •  

    Fruit Coating – Pentalyn® FC

    Pentalyn FC resin is the pentaerythritol ester of maleic anhydride-modified wood rosin. It is particularly suitable for modifying compositions based on alcohol-soluble and water-soluble film formers, to which it contributes high gloss, block resistance, fast solvent release and good adhesion.

    Pentalyn FC meets the US FDA regulation for coatings on fresh citrus fruit and is an alternative to shellac in citrus fruit coatings. Fruit coatings based on Pentalyn FC prevent dehydration of the fruit, inhibit fruit decomposition and enhance the appearance of citrus fruits.

    Endere® S synthetic resin is a highly hydrogenated allergen-tested resin specifically designed for use in skin contact products. Endere® S is produced from naturally derived feedstocks and provides exceptional resistance to oxidation and discoloration caused by heat and aging.

    Foral® 85 is the glycerol ester of highly hydrogenated wood rosin. The stability of the resin to oxidation makes an excellent choice for "spa formula" depilatory waxes thet are likely to be exposed to heat for long intervals.

    Hercolyn® D methyl ester of hydrogenated rosin is a light amber liquid resinous tackifier and plasticizer with low odor, excellent pigment wetting properties and broad regulatory clearances. This allergen tested resin is used extensively in fragrance compounds, where it functions as a fixative, carrier and compatibilizer.

    Staybelite® Ester 3 is a viscous semi-solid glycerol ester of wood rosin. It is a perfect candidate for depilatory waxes.

    Staybelite® Ester 10 synthetic resin is the glycerol ester of partially hydrogenated wood rosin. Broad regulatory approvals and wide compatibility with polymers and solvents make it the perfect candidate for depilatory wax compounds.
