Cray Valley Relocates Hydrocarbon Resin Production to Texas Facility (8/20/09)

August 20, 2009

Cray Valley is now manufacturing its W series pure monomer hydrocarbon resins at its plant in Channelview, TX. The change guarantees that the company will be able to meet global demand and improve distribution.

By shifting manufacturing sites, Cray Valley now also has the ability to broaden the product’s range of softening points, normally between 85º C and 110º C, to meet customer needs. These resins are water white and have a very low odor.

W series tackifying and reinforcing resins are used in mastics and EVA-based hot-melt adhesives. Their stability makes them particularly suitable for high-quality bookbinding, hygiene applications and packaging for luxury goods.
