Neville Chemical Company is pleased to announce its plans to produce hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins at its Neville Island facility in Pittsburgh, Pennyslvania.
Hydrogenated resins are “water-white” odorless tackifiers that offer exceptional heat, oxidative and ultraviolet light stability along with enhanced health, safety and environmental characteristics. They represent the fastest growing segment of the hydrocarbon resin tackifier families.
The addition of hydrogenated resins to Neville’s extensive product portfolio will address increasing customer and consumer demand for a range of high performance products in Adhesives, Sealants, Coatings, Tire, Polymer, Film and Wax modification markets. They will also satisfy regulatory requirements in specific application segments of the Adhesive and Sealants market, such as food packaging, personal hygiene and non-woven diaper products.
The Company has already begun work on its new state-of-the-art hydrogenated resin processing unit. Commercial operations will begin during the third quarter of 2020 and will initially include heat polymerized cycloaliphatic and aromatic modified cycloaliphatic products in a broad range of glass transition temperatures.
Founded in 1925, Neville has been manufacturing thermal polymerized hydrocarbon resins since 1948.We look forward to applying our extensive knowledge of raw materials, formulation expertise, resin design and thermal polymerization technology to develop value-added hydrogenated resins that meet the demanding performance and regulatory requirements of both the industries we currently supply and the new markets we plan to serve.
