Kristalex™ Pure Monomer Hydrocarbon resins are water-white, highly color stable, nonpolar, low molecular weight thermoplastic polymers. These resins are compatible with a wide variety of oils, waxes, alkyds, plastics, and elastomers, and are soluble in many common organic solvents. They are used in plastics modification, adhesives, coatings, sealants, and caulks.


  • In EVA-based hot melt adhesives Kristalex™ grades have useful compatibility with EVA grades with up to 30% vinyl acetate and are useful in formulating low-colour adhesives with good low temperature properties. In styrenic block copolymer based adhesives Kristalex™ grades preferentially associate with the styrenic end blocks, producing higher room-temperature cohesion without affecting tack and adhesion properties.
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Intermediate softening point
  • Made from purified aromatic monomers
  • Water-white initial color
