Maximize Cost Reductions Using WINGTACK STS in SBS-polymer adhesives

Published on 2008-01-10. Author : SpecialChem

Global specialty chemicals manufacturer Cray Valley introduces its new Wingtack® STS aromatically modified C5 resin. This hydrocarbon resin is designed for improved compatibility and performance with low-cost SBS block co-polymers.

Wingtack STS, when used in butadiene-based elastomers, offers extremely low odor and excellent compatibility with polar elastomers. A breakthrough in reducing total system costs, Wingtack STS allows the use of SBS block co-polymers at higher levels in blends with other polymers. The innovative technology of Wingtack STS also provides lower melt viscosities than typical SBS systems, which is ideal for the demanding, high-speed coating needed on today's tape and label equipment. Applications for this modified resin include non-woven construction, pressure-sensitive and hot-melt adhesives.

Globally based in Paris, France, Cray Valley's tackifying resins line includes Wingtack and Norsolene resins used as raw materials for coatings, adhesives, inks, elastomers and other applications.
