HCR Resins are used in coloured asphalt and as a clean binder for synthetic bitumen for the road construction and building industry. The clear, amber-colored binder, composed of a petroleum hydrocarbon resin, is mixed with coloured coarse, fine and mineral aggregate at a hot–mix plant. These materials may have improved mechanical properties as compared to the traditional modified bitumen. Our hydrocarbon resin in synthetic bitumen improves rheological characteristics, such as viscosity, adhesion, cohesive strength, durability, abrasion resistance, drainage endurance and lengthens the duration of color asphalt. This type of binder is recommended for lightly frequented surfaces as well as for heavily frequented roads. Our hydrocarbon resins are suitable for aliphatic, aromatic and naphthenic systems.
Resins have a long history of use in rubber compounding, to facilitate compounding and to achieve suitable strength. The necessary properties are more or less the same as for the tyre industry. Resins serve many functions in rubber compounds. In uncured rubbers they function as process aids, softeners, tackifiers, pigment dispersing aids and homogenizing agents. In cured rubbers their function is as a plasticizers, extenders, and reinforcing agents. These materials are included in the rubber formulation to reduce the time and energy required to break downthe polymer, e.g., peptizers or other materials that reduce the viscosity of the rubber mix. At the same time they can help improve the dispersion of dry materials, produce smoother stocks, improve the dispersion rate of fillers, and, in some instances, increase the homogeneity of rubber blends.
In tires & rubber compounds resins:
Improve green tack;
Lowers Mooney viscosity of the compound;
Have limited influence on vulcanization time and physical properties after vulcanization;
Lowers hardness and modulus of compound after vulcanization;
Our resins can be used in asphalt-based, self-adhesive waterproofing membranes for the roofing underlayment, waterproofing foundation etc. Our resins used in these products to improve tackifying properties, give more elasticity, show good performance at low and high temperature and provide an adhesion to a variety of surfaces while shows good water barrier coating.
HCR resins are widely used in different coating applications, such as protective coatings, paints, sealants etc. Adding HCR resins helps to improve film hardness, to encase gloss, to shorten drying time in air-drying systems, to improve adhesion to substrate, to reach good strength, flexibility and durability. Our hydrocarbon resins are soluble in normal paint solvents such as aromatic or aliphatic D type and have good compatibility with various basic binders.
Asphalt emulsions are used in a wide range of paving and roofing applications, particulary in pavement rehabilitation and maintenance. Resins are using to pre-modificate asphalt prior to emulsification. Our resins help to improve stability and leave the finished emulsion residue with improved adhesion, resilience and toughness.
