Developing formulations for low polarity systems can be a challenge.
The newest product offering from TOTAL Cray Valley
— Wingtack 102 — is an aliphatic resin with a high softening point and lower molecular weight distribution than typical 100˚C hydrocarbon resins.
This provides excellent compatibility with many aliphatic polymers, resulting in formulations with superior stability.
Wingtack 102 has 35 percent lower volatiles than other similar hydrocarbon resins, giving it exceptionally low odor and low product volatility. Coupled with its low color and novel softening point/molecular weight relationship, Wingtack 102 can improve the performance of pressure-sensitive and hot melt adhesive applications.
For rubber applications, Wingtack 102 acts as a low-volatile processing aid. It can also be used for belts, hoses and tire applications as an effective replacement for aromatic-containing oils.
Wingtack 102 has low volatility, low chlorides and low ash, making it ideal for use in more demanding applications such as wax investment casting.
