Gilsonite Resin competes advantageously with petroleum-based hydrocarbon resins, phenolic resins and metal resinates, all of which it can complement or replace to various degrees. Various concentrations of our Gilsonite Resin are used to manufacture law-rub-off news inks with superior gloss and tack properties. Special grades of Gilsonite called Selects are also standard ingredients in black ink formulations and are used as additives in asphaltic paints and varnishes. For Paint , If added to asphaltic paints and varnishes, Gilsonite's unique qualities improve their roughness, gloss and chemical and weather resistance.Printing Inks, Gilsonite is an important cost-effective ingredients in the manufacture of high quality vehicles for dark printing inks.

Gilsonite® resin Selects PI-300 Grade is readily soluble without heating in aromatic solvents (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene) and in most chlorinated solvents. It is also soluble without heating in aliphatic and low aromatic solvents (VM&P and other Napthas, Ink Oils and Mineral Spirits), but mixing time is longer. Without heating, the pulverized grade is recommended.
Films developed from Selects PI-300 have a very dark color with little bronzing effect. Solutions do not thicken appreciably upon aging. Selects PI-300 Grade is compatible with drying oils, rosins, hydrocarbon resins, elastomers, asphalts, and waxes for specialty applications. It has limited solubility in most alcohols and ketones.
Gilsonite Selects PI-300 is available in 50 lb. and 25 kilo net multi-ply paper bags, which may be palletized and stretch wrapped. It is also available in bulk loaded trucks and in a variety of bulk bag sizes.
