Foreverest® Extra Light Color Hydrogenated Rosinates (CHRDs)  are modified rosin derivative. This group has light color appearance in hazen unit, which are mainly used in adhesive industry, especially used in screen protection film, medicinal patch, diaper adhesives, PSA and HMA. Based on refined hydrogenated rosin,  Extra light color rosinates through the process on pretreatment, steam distillation, vacuum steam distillation and vacuum distillation to separate the crude oil, resin acid, fatty acid and oxide resins. Then after esterification, this group appears light color, low odor, excellent heating resistance, weathering resistance, high softening point and other characteristics.

The hydrogenation degree can be determined by the content of Tetrahydro-resin acid/ester and Dihydro-resin acid/ester. CHRDs show high level of hydrogenation (see Table1), which represents the latest hydrogenation technology in China, with an eltra-light color and excellent color stability (see Table2).

Compared to other tackifiering resins, CHRDs provide an optimum combination of adhesion, clarity and stability, all important attributes for formulating high-end adhesives. (See Table3).

Table 3.CHRDs compared with other resins
Advantages over non-hydrogenated rosin resins and partially-hydrogenated rosin resins Advantages over Hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins
1. lighter color;
2. Little or no skin sensitizing;
3. improved stability and color retention;
4. better aging resistance;
5. less UV absorption, suitable for UV curable polymer based adhesives;
1. low-or-no VOC;
2. adhere well to low-energy surfaces;
3. bio-based, environmentally Friendly;
4. more polar and narrower in molecular weight, wider compatibility with almost all polymers, especially suitable for acrylic polymers;


Foreverest® Colorless Hydrogenated Rosin Derivatives (CHRDs) are mainly used as tackifiers in adhesives and sealants, especially for acrylic adhesives, while 400 could also be used in soldering fluxes. They are excellent alternatives to Arakawa® products and Eastman® products (see Table4).
