Kolon Hikorez A-1115 is a pale yellow adhesive tackifier resin based on an aliphatic hydrocarbon resin derived from the polymerization of unsaturated aliphatic olefins and diolefins derived from the thermal cracking of naphtha. Hikorez A-1115 is thermoplastic, and was designed for use as a tackifier for solvent-based pressure sensitive adhesives, hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives, and hot melt adhesives.
Hikorez resins are typically soluble in hexane, butyl acetate, carbon tetrachloride, toluene, tetrahydrofuran, benzene, chloroform, chlorobenzene, and carbon disulfide. Hikorez resins are partially soluble in ethyl acetate and are typically insoluble in methyl isobutyl ketone, isopropyl alcohol, methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, 1,4-dioxin, aniline, butyl alcohol, furfuryl alcohol, and methanol.
Additionally, Hikorez resins are typically compatible with linseed oil, soybean oil, tall oil, tricresyl phosphate, butyl benzyl phthalate, dioctyl phthalate, dibutyl phthalate, gum rosin, tall oil rosin, ester gum, polyterpene, paraffin wax, microcrystalline wax, carnauba wax, polyethylene wax, natural rubber, butyl rubber, SIS block copolymer, SEBS block copolymer, amorphous polyalpha olefins, ethylene vinyl acetate, and is partially soluble in polystyrene, SBS block copolymers, and phenolic resins.
