Tackifiers  

Escorez™ tackifiers are amorphous, glassy, low-molecular-weight hydrocarbon polymers that promote adhesion and tack in hot-melt and pressure-sensitive adhesives. They are compatible with most base polymers, polymer modifiers and antioxidants that you may add to your adhesive formulation.

Tackifiers can influence the color, odor and stability of the adhesive. Selection depends primarily on softening point, composition, molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. The tackifiers can also be used to improve the compatibility of other adhesive additives.

Benefits

  • Consistent quality
  • Thermal stability
  • Light color
  • Polymer compatibility
  • Low odor properties
