Carbofen® 6060

Introduction

Carbofen® 6060 is derived from the natural resin of the araucaria angustifolia, also known as the Parana Pine. Once processed and modified, the resin’s air-retention properties are maximized and it becomes an excellent anionic bitumen emulsifier and air-entraining agent. This polyphenolic thermoplastic resin is a brown powder insoluble in water. After being saponified by caustic soda (NaOH) or potassium hydroxide (KOH), Carbofen® 6060 becomes a soap solution and soluble.

Applications

Due to its physical and chemical properties, Carbofen® 6060 can be used as a raw material or by itself for a variety of industrial applications, such as:

  • Air-entraining agent and plasticizer for cement, concrete and mortar,
  • Anionic bitumen emulsifier for slow setting (SS-1 and SS-1H) emulsions for road pavement rejuvenation, microsufacing, slurry seal and roofing applications,
  • Adhesives and sealants for the gasket industry,
  • Flexographic inks and coatings
  • Foundry molds and core washes
  • Binder in paperboard and composition board
