Piccolyte® A resins
Polymers based on alpha-pinene
The most polar of the straight polyterpene resins, Piccolyte® A polyterpene resins are excellent tackifiers in pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesive systems using styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and styrene block copolymers, particularly S-B-S. Other applications include paints, coatings, caulks and sealants, investment castings, and waterproofing agents. A unique member of this family is Piccolyte® AO Plus polyterpene oligomers, which is used in the agricultural industry as a retention aid and sticker for herbicide and pesticide application.
Piccolyte® C resins
Polymers based on d-limonene
Piccolyte® C polyterpene resins derived from the citrus monomer d-limonene are excellent polymer modifiers for block copolymers, butyl rubber, and polyisoprene rubber. They are primarily used as tackifiers for rubber-based, pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesive systems. They are also used in premium quality chewing gum compositions as well as can sealants.
Piccolyte® F resins
Mixed pinene and modified polyterpene resins
Piccolyte® F polyterpene resins are effective tackifiers for natural and synthetic rubbers in pressure sensitive and hot melt adhesives. Food-grade versions of these resins can be used in chewing gum base.
Piccolyte® S resins
Polymers based on beta-pinene
Piccolyte® S polyterpene resins are extensively used in pressure sensitive adhesives and other solvent-based adhesives. They are useful as tackifiers for natural rubber and other nonpolar elastomers as well as in non-adhesive applications such as precision investment castings.
