Kolon Sukorez SU-230 is a low color adhesive tackifier resin based on hydrogenated C5/cyclic hydrocarbon resin. Sukorez SU-230 is thermoplastic, and was designed for use as a tackifier for hot melt adhesives, and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives. Sukorez SU-230 exhibits good heat resistance and good compatibility with base polymers such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and styrene-isoprene-styrene block copolymers (SIS).
Sukorez resins are typically soluble in hexane, carbon tetrachloride, toluene, tetrahydrofuran, benzene, chloroform, chlorobenzene, and carbon disulfide. Sukorez resins are typically insoluble in butyl acetate, methyl isobutyl ketone, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, 1,4-dioxin, aniline, butyl alcohol, furfuryl alcohol, and methanol.
Additionally, Sukorez 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, SBS block copolymer, SIS block copolymer, SEBS block copolymer, amorphous polyalpha olefins, ethylene vinyl acetate, and is partially soluble in polystyrene and phenolic resins.
