Teckrez, a company specializing in tackifiers, announced a new range of hydrogenated hydrocarbon (HC Series) resins, including fully hydrogenated (HF Series) and aromatically-modified hydrogenated (HM Series). These are hydrogenated C9 resins that provide superior stability and performance compared to currently available hydrogenated hydrocarbon (DCPD and C5-based) resins.
The Teckrez HF and HM Series hydrogenated C9 resins are produced by Henghe Materials and Science and marketed by Teckrez in North America to producers of adhesives, sealants, and coatings.
“We are pleased Henghe Materials chose Teckrez as their exclusive distribution partner for these products in the United States,” says Marc Jackson, president of Teckrez. “Henghe made a significant investment, resulting in more than 50 thousand tons of new capacity for hydrogenated C9 resins. Until now, this type of resin has had limited availability in North America.”
These resins enable customers to differentiate packaging and converting adhesives, pressure-sensitive tape and label products, and sealants by improved adhesion, lower odor, lighter color, and better thermal-oxidative stability.
“Teckrez looks forward to helping our customers create value with these resins in applications that include adhesives, sealants, coatings, and plastic films,” continues Jackson. “Hydrogenated C9 resins offer many benefits, including light color, low odor, high adhesion and excellent thermal stability.”
