In the adhesive industry, a tackifier is a substance or compound added to an adhesive formulation to increase its initial tack or stickiness. Tack is the ability of an adhesive to bond quickly to a substrate upon contact, even with minimal pressure. This is particularly important in pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) applications where fast adhesion is needed, such as labels, tapes, and stickers.

In the adhesive formulation phase, tackifiers can also affect the rheological properties of the adhesive, impacting its flow and viscosity. They can also affect the adhesive's peel strength and shear resistance.

Tackifiers are typically natural or modified resin materials. These include Gum Rosin Derivatives, Hydrogenated Resin Derivatives, Polyterpene Resins, and Hydrocarbon resins. Each technology scheme of resin can contribute different properties to the adhesive. The choice of tackifier depends on the specific type of polymer used in the adhesive formulation. Tackifiers should be compatible with the polymer to ensure optimal performance.

Terpene Phenolic Resin AP

CAS: Proprietary

Terpene phenolic resin, a variety of terpene raw materials were polymerized and reacted with phenol in a certain proportion. It is a certain polarity and good compatible with rubber of high strength and high density. It is suitable for hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive with high temperature and high strength, the initial adhesion and stripping force is at high level. and better than monomer alpha terpene resin.


Isobornyl Methacrylate (IBOMA)

CAS: 7534-94-3
SPECS: 7534-94-3-99

Isobornyl methacrylate (IBOMA) is an acrylic ester monomer with a bridged-ring structure. Its double bond is a C=C bond, with the methyl group attached to the carbon adjacent to the carbonyl group. Typically, the polymerization rate of methacrylates is slower than that of acrylates because the additional methyl group impedes rotation around the double bond […]
