High-grade Hydrocarbon resin

Low-molecular weight / amorphous Aromatic Hydrocarbon resin with excellent color characteristics.

Applications detail

Hot-melt adhesives, tackifiers


FTR™ is a High-Grade Hydrocarbon Resin developed by MITSUI CHEMICALS INC. for use in hot melt adhesives for book binding, packaging and varieties of adhesive tapes on the basis of its proprietary oligomer manufacturing technology.

FTR™ is colorless and transparent and shows excellent heat resistance, low odor, good compatibility with various plastics and elastomers, excellent high-temperature adhesion and color stability when used as tackifier.

Adhesive tapes (cellophane, polystyrene, polypropylene, etc. as their substrate)
Hot melt adhesives (EVA, EEA, SIS, SBS, etc.)

  1. EVA : ethylene / vinyl chloride copolymer
  2. EEA : Ethylene / Ethyl acrylate copolymer
  3. SIS : Styrene isobutylene block rubber
  4. SBS : stylene butadiene block rubber

Characteristics of FTR™
  1. Excellent color and heat stability
  2. Good compatibility with various plastics, elastomers and wax
  3. Good solubility in various solvents
  4. Good adhesion at high temperature
