Liquid Homopolymers and Copolymers

LEAD CHEMICALS manufactures and supplies diene-based liquid homopolymers and copolymers, C5 and C9 hydrocarbon tackifying resins, derivatives, and specialty monomer products.


LEAD CHEMICALS focuses on tackifiers and adhesives, while also supporting other conventional markets and new opportunities in the coatings, and plastics modification areas. The many technologies for us lead to molecular structures in our products that promote rheology control, crosslinking, adhesion, sealing, reactive intermediates, polymer synthesis, and dispersion.


The Realtack® and Supertack® series cover a wide spectrum of aliphatic and aromatic grades. The Realtack grades are high-quality, low color C5 and their modified hydrocarbon resin. The Supertack N series are C9 aromatic Petroleum resin.


C5 aliphatic, C9 aromatic hydrocarbon resin and their modified products from LEAD CHEMICAL have utility in many markets. In adhesives, hydrocarbon resins are used in hot melts adhesive, pressure sensitive tapes and labels, construction mastics, and many specialty applications. Hydrocarbon resins are also excellent tackifiers and compatibilization aids in the rubber market. In addition, hydrocarbon resins have found utility in paints & coatings, investment wax casting compounds, thermoplastic/thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) modification, hydrophobic sealants, and thermoplastic road marking paints and so on.
