Hydroabietyl Alcohol

Products & Informations

Hydroabietyl Alcohol is a colorless, tacky, balsamic resin ester.

It is a high molecular weight, primary, monohydric alcohol made from Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate.

Its tackiness and extremely pale color, combined with its solubility in common organic solvents and compatibility with resins, film-formers, and oils, have led to its use as a resinous plasticizer and/or tackifier in plastics, lacquers, inks and adhesives.
