There are many types of resins. The resins that we are going to talk about are the ones that chemically modified from natural resins and synthetic polymers. Natural resins and synthetic polymers are physically similar. These resins include thermoplastic and thermosetting materials like epoxies, polyesters, polystyrene, Polyvinyl, silicones and more. Resins are used in the form of pigments, stabilizers and other components. These components are used for creating and modifying plastics.
One of the biggest categories of resins belongs to plastic resins. Plastic resins have a lot of variety and use. This type of resins manufactured using synthetic materials. One of the subcategories of plastic resins is polyethylene resin that has a lot of applications in a wide range of products like pill bottles, soda containers, and milk jugs. One other type is polystyrene that can withstand high temperatures. So this is a great option for drinking cups and other products of this kind.
Epoxy resins have extremely good electrical properties and chemical resistance. Also, with the aid of the right kind of additives, epoxy resins can show an amazing resistance to electrical insulation and heat. Epoxy resins can be in the liquid or solid form and have a wide variety of uses. Thanks to its special features, there are many applications for it in different industries like automotive, chemical plant and defense. Also, Nano resins are a modified epoxy resin that shows higher strength and rigidity than other resins of this kind. Even more, epoxy resins are very suitable for construction. These types of resins that are used for construction and other industrial purposes named construction or industrial resins.
Plastic resins have another subcategory called acrylic resin. This type has a different process of manufacturing. Acrylic resins are very strong and transparent and derived from acrylic acid, methacrylic acid and different compounds of this kind. This makes acrylic resins a perfect fit for cell phone displays, taillights for cars, aquariums and many more transparent objects.
The combination of two components named polyol and polyisocyanate make polyurethanes. Polyurethane in the form of a resin used in the composites industry. In combining with other resins, polyurethanes can be very versatile. Polyurethane has chemical and electrical properties and has a great physical capability. This kind of resins is used for adhesives, foam liners, insulation, elastomers and more.
The act of resin casting highly depends to liquid casting. In the process of resin casting liquid resin gets into a rubber mold and hardens. Then by taking away the mold, we can see the hardened resin form. Resin casting is mainly popular in small businesses or home enthusiasts and because of the huge amount of work and labor it takes, big businesses and productions don’t use this method. Resin casting is a great option for making jewelry, toys and small figurines.
