Gilsonite Compatibility

Gilsonite is compatible with Microcrystalline and Paraffin Waxes, Petroleum Resins and Oils, Rosins, Tall Oil Pitch, Vegetable Oils (Linseed, Soya, etc.), Petroleum Process Oils, and Petroleum Asphalts.

Compatibility With Commercial Resins

The following is a general guide to the compatibility of Gilsonite resin in common film-forming and elastomeric systems. Because Gilsonite compatibility can be influenced by variations within a resin/elastomer class and by other components in a formulation, it is good practice to verify Gilsonite compatibility in the specific formula of interest.
