Piccolyte® S25

Piccolyte®S25 polyterpene resin is a semi-solid, pale, inert, low molecular weight, thermoplastic resin. Produced from high purity beta-pinene isolated from turpentine, it is characterized by light color and color stability, low odor, and an excellent balance of adhesive and cohesive properties. It is an outstanding tackifier for natural rubber and is designed primarily for use in pressure-sensitive adhesives, hot-melt adhesives, coatings, and rubber compounding. The low softening point of Piccolyte S25 resin gives it utility as a plasticizer and softener as well as possible improved performance in low-temperature applications.
