Depending on temperature and age, resins are more or less liquid products which consist of various chemical substances and serve for the production of e.g. lacquers, soaps, pharmaceuticals and turpentine.

In natural form, resins are being secreted as natural resins by animals and plants, especially trees, and primarily serve to close wounds.

In the industrial sector, it is mainly synthetic resins which are applied.

Synthetic resins

According to DIN 55958 (as of December 1988) synthetic resins (also called reactive resins) are synthetically produced by way of polymerization reactions, poly-addition reactions or poly-condensate reactions. They can be modified by natural materials such as plant or animal oils or naturals resins or be manufactured by way of esterification or saponification of natural resins.

reactive resins

Reactive resins or important for the industrial sector (as raw products for the production of synthetic materials): liquid or liquefiable resins which will cure on their own or with reactants (such as hardening agents or accelerators) without separating volatile components by way of polymerization or poly-addition (thermoset).
