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.
Regalrez® 1094 is a low molecular weight synthetic resin which makes a varnish with a refractive index similar to dammar and other natural resin varnishes. Varnish made with Regalrez produces a very smooth surface that reduces light scattering at the surface. This results in higher gloss and more saturated colors.
Natural Pigments is a limited liability company based in Willits, California. We manufacture and distribute rare and hard-to-find materials for fine artists and decorators. We specialize in supplying artists' materials that were used in historical painting since pre-historic times up to and including the nineteenth century.
We constantly search for materials and products of the finest quality so that we can bring them direct to you from the source. To do so, we travel the world to find materials specifically for use by professional artists and decorators. We obtain minerals from mines in Afghanistan, Chile, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, to name a few places, processing these into natural pigments. We purchase resins, gums and plants from India, Kenya and Malaysia to make natural varnishes and painting mediums.
Our mission is to provide the largest variety of natural pigments, paints and other professional artists' supplies, enabling us to bring you a selection that makes shopping for rare and hard-to-find art materials easy. Our objective is to promote the education and use of these materials among artists by providing detailed information for their employment in encaustic, fresco, oil, watercolor and tempera painting.
