Description:

New Quintone® DX-590_DP resin can add the properties of tackiness, friction, binding, and processability to polymers that don’t possess these properties or that need them enhanced. It offers a wide and diverse area of application. Applications include food packaging, binding cellulose for water resistance, sizing paper for better ink acceptance, adding adhesion to tapes and labels, adding adhesion to fertilizers and pharmaceuticals for controlled release, adding tackiness to rubbers and specialty plastics, stress relief in wrapping films, and improving the mixing, kneading, and processability properties of resins and inorganic materials. Quintone can act as a binding agent for inorganic materials and ceramics. It burns off in the firing. It can be added to hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesives (HMPSA), where it offers low-odor, excellent thermal stability, and high adhesive performance.

Tech offering: low-VOC resin/binder for polymers

Quintone is a hydrogenated aliphatic hydrocarbon resin that is lighter in color than Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD). Its low-odor and low-VOC outgassing makes it superior in consumer applications to DCPD, which has an acrid odor.

Zeon is seeking R&D partners to find even more applications for Quintone. The produce is in commercial production.

Quintone DX590 gives well balanced effects for HMPSA

Benefits:

  • Adds tackiness
  • Increases friction
  • Relieves stress
  • Light color
  • Low VOC
  • Mixes well with ceramics and inorganics
  • Binds cellulose, coats paper for ink retention
  • Enhances processability by lowering viscosity

Quintone can add tackiness or friction to the base material, bind inorganic materials or cellulose, control release of fertilizer in the field or act as a pharmaceutical binder. It can relieve stress in the base material (for example, in films), and it provides easy processing capabilities to the base material.

Functions of Quintone Function in Detail Application Base Compound (target)
Provide adhesion to base polymer Quintone can impart tackiness to base polymers that have none Adhesive material Rubber, TPE
Provide friction to base Quintone can increase friction of the base polymer to prevent slipping Sheets, films, tapes, etc. Rubber, resin
Binds inorganic materials (example: ceramic burning agent) A small amount of Quintone can bind a large amount of inorganic material Traffic paint, impression material White pigment
Quintone can  mix with ceramics; firing it develops ceramic functions Ceramic work piece Clay, etc.
Binds cellulose Quintone can prevent water from loosening cellulose. Quintone can offer a sizing surface to prevent ink bleed. Plain paper Pulp
Binds fertlizer, controls release of fertlizer, controls release of drugs and pharmaceuticals Quintone can gradually release components by mixing with and binding delayed release agent, fertilizer, or drug Fertilizer pellets Drugs
Improves stress relief of the base polymer Quintone can relieve stress in wrapping films Wrapping film PO, PVC, EVA, etc
Provides easy processability to the base polymer Quintone can make it easier to knead things that are difficult to mix, such as resin and inorganic materials, by reducing viscosity Tire compounds, various types of rubber Rubber, carbon black, silica

 

Technology Differentiation and Uniqueness:

Compared to DCPD and similar competing materials:

  • Quintone offers low-VOC, making it useful in food and other packaging applications.
  • Quintone is lighter in color.
  • Quintone is less expensive than other materials for adding functionality to a base polymer.
  • Quintone can help balance a base polymer’s functionality.

 

Quintone can:

  • Impart tackiness to a base polymer that has none.
  • Increase friction of the base polymer to prevent slippage.
  • Relieve the stress of the base polymer.
  • Mix with ceramics to develop ceramic functions. Quintone burns off during firing, leaving only ashes.
  • Mix with cellulose to resist water degradation.
  • Apply to paper as sizing to provide a surface able to take and hold ink without bleeding.
  • Make it easier to knead materials that are otherwise difficult to mix, such as resins and inorganic materials. Quintone reduces viscosity.

Quintone is produced using Zeon’s proprietary, highly purified monomers. The molecule has a unique design.

 

Development Status:

Quintone is already in commercial production.
