SIBA has introduced a new range of products that are combined in the group of hydrocarbon resins. The company has decided to offer this type of product to customers which in particular are engaged in the implementation of protective rubber sheaths, even though the resins can also be used in other areas.
The thermoplastic hydrocarbon resins are produced by polymerization of the cycloaliphatic and alkylaromatic monomer.
A chemically neutral, water-repellent, alkali, dilute acid and caustic solution resistant resin; they possess a series of both chemical and physical properties, such as softening point, glass transition temperature and molecular weight distribution.
Hydrocarbon resins are particularly suitable for:
- Offset inks;
- Road signs;
- Bituminous waterproofing systems;
- Road construction to improve the rheological characteristics of the bitumen.
The resins are packed in 25 kg bags or, on request, in 1,000 kg big bags.
SIBA, thanks to continuous technological innovation, has developed hydrocarbon resins in order to best meet market needs.
