Regalrez® 1094 hydrocarbon resin is produced by polymerization and hydrogenation of pure monomer hydrocarbon feedstocks. Regalrez® 1094 is a highly stable, light colored, low molecular weight, nonpolar resin suggested for use in plastics,, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and caulks. Regalrez® 1094 is especially suited to applications where the lowest color and most stability against weathering and thermal degradation is required. Regalrez® 1094 is suggested for use in elastomeric sealants and adhesives tapes where outdoor exposure will occur or where clarity and resistance to yellowing is a requirement. Regalrez® 1094 contains no added antioxidants or UV stabilizers.

Regalrez® 1094 is soluble in aliphatic and aromatic solvents, C5 and higher esters and ketones. It is insoluble in glycol ethers, glycol ether esters, and alcohols. For low/zero VOC systems Regalrez® 1094 is soluble in t-butyl acetate and perchlorobenzenetetrafluoride (PCBTC) and will tolerate some acetone and/or methyl acetate as a diluent in solvent blends based on TBA and/or PCBTF.
Regalrez® 1094 is compatible with polyethylene, polypropylene, natural rubber, EPDM, butyl rubber, ethylene propylene copolymers and the isoprene, ethylene-propylene and ethylene-butylene midblocks of SIS and SEPS, and SEBS block copolymers. Regalrez® 1094 can be used with EVA copolymers with less than 20% vinyl acetate, paraffin, microcrystalline and polyolefin waxes.
Laropal A 81’s excellent solubility and compatibility enable it to be used in many types of paints. t can be used to improve gloss, hardness, body, adhesion and yellowing resistance, depending on the coating’s intended application.
A very pale color and good pigment wetting are two properties that make Laropal A 81 particularly suitable for producing all-purpose pigment preparations. The low viscosity of its solutions enable high-pigment-content pastes to be produced.
Since it has good heat resistance, Laropal A 81 is also used for baking finishes, particularly since it does not cause any odors or discoloration of the resin.
