Bitoner Hydrocarbon Resins

The Bitoner resin series is used in many applications and industries, including solvent based PSA, sealants, coatings, printing inks, rubber and hot melt adhesives. They can be used as tackifiers, performance modifiers and homogenising agents.

The main types are C5 Aliphatic, C9 Aromatic and C5 & C9 Copolymer Hydrocarbon Resins. They are sometimes hydrogenated to reduce discoloration and to improve their heat and UV stability.

C5 Aliphatic Hydrocarbon Resin

C5 Aliphatic Hydrocarbon Resin is a thermoplastic resin, obtained from polymerising unsaturated aliphatic petroleum feedstock. It has a light colour, slight odour and low volatility.

Applications:

A tackifier resin in adhesive and sealant industries, especially for hot-melt adhesive, pressure sensitive adhesives, packaging adhesives, bookbinding adhesives, wood adhesive, adhesive tape, glue sticks and labels.

C9 Aromatic Hydrocarbon Resin

The C9 Aromatic Hydrocarbon Resin is a thermoplastic resin, obtained from polymerising unsaturated aromatic petroleum feedstock.  It has a dark yellow colour, distinctive aromatic odour, low volatility and is water resistant.

Applications:

This series is mainly used in adhesives, printing inks, sealants, polychloroprene rubber, concrete curing compounds, anti-drying agents and paints. 

C5 and C9 Copolymer Hydrocarbons

The C5 and C9 Copolymer Hydrocarbon Resin line includes aliphatic-modified aromatic resins and aromatic-modified aliphatic resins. Aromatic modified aliphatic resins enhance compatibility in various elastomers and can provide increased specific adhesion and tack for applications that require improved performance off low-energy surfaces and recycled corrugated cardboard.

Applications:

A tackifier resin in adhesive and sealant industries, especially for packing tapes, hot melt adhesives, SIS-based high-performance formulations. This resin is also a good choice as processing agent for high grade tyre and rubber products.

Hydrogenated C9 Hydrocarbon Resin

Hydrogenated C9 Hydrocarbon Resin is a white colour granular form and odourless.  It has a wide range compatibility with different resins and polymers, like EVA, SBS and SIS. 

Applications:

This series is mainly used in high grade adhesives, including hot melt adhesives, pressure sensitive adhesives.
