For those seeking adhesive formulations with low odor, hot-melt stability, and biobased content, meet Kraton Corporation‘s REvolution rosin ester technology.
Kraton’s bio-based tackifiers are an ideal chemistry for hot-melt systems due to their excellent adhesion performance on various substrates. They’re used in a wide range of applications including packaging, labels, and flooring adhesives
The REvolution rosin ester technology enables the development of biobased products with light color and oxidative stability. Users can expect versatility, excellent adhesion performance, and compatibility with a broad range of polymers.
Kraton polymers can also be formulated to produce adhesives with a variety of key properties using resins, plasticizers, fillers, antioxidants, and others. These adhesives are versatile and can be applied either as a hot melt or from solution.
Kraton’s bio-based tackifiers include:
- SYLVALITE 2100 Rosin Ester Tackifier. Developed with Kraton’s REvolution rosin ester technology, the product elevates the benchmark for the market by delivering a high-quality biobased resin with lighter color and improved stability.
- SYLVALITE 9100 Rosin Ester Tackifier. Also developed with the new REvolution rosin ester technology, the product offers exceptionally light initial color and advanced stability — making it a viable biobased tackifier for premium hot-melt adhesives applications.
Kraton is a global sustainable producer of specialty polymers and bio-based products derived from pine wood pulping co-products. The company recently announced that it has maintained a Platinum award — the highest rating available for its sustainability management system from EcoVadis.
