Sylvares ZT

Styrenated Terpene Resins

Theses light colored, low odor resins are the right choice for premium hot melt adhesive applications. The aliphatic-aromatic nature of these resins gives them excellent adhesion to a range of substrates including polyolefins. Styrenated terpenes are highly compatible in EVA and SBC systems.  Their biorenewable content is 60%.

Key Features

SYLVARES ZT 105LT is a light color, low odor, heat stable modified terpene resin, which is compatible with a variety of thermoplastic rubbers and elastomeric polymers as well as other numerous compounding ingredients common to adhesives. It provides an excellent balance of properties when compounded with styrenic block copolymers. It is soluble in aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents, esters, ketones and chlorinated solvents. Insoluble in alcohol and water.
