Piccolyte® F105 IG

Piccolyte® F105 IG industrial grade polyterpene resin is a pale, neutral, low molecular weight, highly stable, thermoplastic resin. A copolymer of alpha and beta-pinene, it is characterized by its light color, resistance to aging, and thermal stability. This resin is a highly effective tackifier for both elastomeric and thermoplastic-based adhesive systems. The unique C10 terpene structure of Piccolyte® F105 IG polyterpene resin affords an excellent balance of adhesive properties not typically achievable with traditional hydrocarbon-based resins.
