Escorez™ tackifying resins

Adhesives formulators worldwide rely on Escorez tackifying resins. These amorphous, glassy, low-molecular-weight hydrocarbon polymers promote adhesion and tack in hot-melt and pressure-sensitive adhesives.

The different grades of Escorez tackifiers are compatible with most base polymers – the other essential ingredient in an adhesive – and the polymer modifiers and antioxidants that may be added.

The tackifying resin provides tack and adherence to varied surfaces and also influences the adhesive’s color, odor and stability. Tackifier selection depends primarily on softening point, composition, molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. The tackifier can also be used to make other adhesive additives compatible.

In addition to offering flexibility to formulators, Escorez promotes trouble-free operations for manufacturers that produce tapes, labels, nonwovens, packaging and other adhesive products.

With the world’s largest installed capacity of hydrocarbon resins for the adhesives industry, ExxonMobil Chemical produces Escorez tackifiers of consistent quality with varying degrees of the following properties:

  • Thermal stability
  • Light color
  • Polymer compatibility
  • Low odor

Find the Escorez tackifying resin that’s right for your application. Escorez is compatible with most base polymers – the other essential ingredient in an adhesive – and the polymer modifiers and antioxidants that may be added.
