Methyl Rosinate

Methyl Rosinate, also called Methyl Ester of Rosin, is an amber-colored, near-neutral, tacky, viscous liquid. It is resinous in nature with clarity and high refractive index, low vapor pressure, high boiling point, and good thermal stability. It has excellent surface-wetting properties. These physical properties, plus its wide compatibility, make it useful in a variety of applications.

Our Methyl Ester of Rosin can substitute for Pinova product.
