Thermoplastic hydrocarbon resins/polymers derived from monomers of cracked petroleum fractions such as C5, C9, and dicyclopentadiene feedstocks.
Petroleum resin is term in common use for low molecular weight, about M w 500–5,000, thermoplastic hydrocarbon resins derived from cracked petroleum fractions. They are to be distinguished from high polymers such as polystyrene and polypropylene, which are pure-monomer-based resins essentially made from pure starting materials such as styrene and propylene, respectively. The petroleum resin generally has a tackifying effect and is suitable for use in paints and varnishes, coatings, printing ink, lithographic inks, paper, adhesives, rubber, concrete-curing compounds, and other areas where tackiness is required, literally in thousands of applications [1, 2].
Historically speaking, early petroleum resins were soft, unstable, and dark. However, they have been continuously improved to...
