What is a resin?

Resin is a polymer with large molecular chains that are produced naturally or synthetically (centrifugal). Resin flooring is a raw material in the paint industry and fiberglass industry classified according to its structure. The primary function of resin flooring for homes in the paint industry is as follows:

  1. Color film formation
  2. The role of the substrate and the color matrix in which other materials such as filler pigment, etc., are dispersed.
  3. Create the expected properties of paint, such as chemical resistance, optical resistance, and so on.

Classification of resins: As mentioned, resins are classified in terms of structure. Of course, variety can also be done in terms of place of use, properties of the resin, etc., but the primary classification of resins in terms of structure with its application is described. The following is.

Alkyd resins

  • Includes industrial oils
  • Medium oil Industrial, construction paints
  • Long oil Construction paints

Epoxy resins

  • Solvent-free liquid epoxy resins and industrial flooring
  • Solid epoxy resins for industrial and protective paints
  • Powder epoxy resins Powder paint industry

Acrylic resins

  • Water-based acrylic resins for building and decorative paints for interior and exterior surfaces
  • Solvent-based acrylic resins for industrial paints, heat-resistant paints, traffic paints, special paints, and pool paints

Polyester resins

  • Unsaturated polyester resin of fiberglass industry
  • Vinyl ester resin floors of fiberglass industry, special anti-acid paints
  • Coil saturated polyester resin printing colors
  • Powder polyester resin Powder paints

Epoxy hardener

  • Solid epoxy hardening polyamide resin system
  • Liquid polyamine resin hardening system epoxy

Isocyanate resin

  • MDI Polyurethane and solvent-free polyurethane flooring
  • TDI Polyurethane paints

resin types

Polyol resins

  • Polyol based on castor oil for polyurethane floors
  • Polyol Polyester Polyurethane paints, furnace paints
  • Polyol Polyester Polyurethane paints, polyurethane foam

Vinyl resins

  • Chlorine rubber Traffic paints, marine paints
  • Polyvinyl chloride wood glue and plastic paint
  • Silicone resin resistant and refractory paints
  • Melamine alkyd resins and melamine urea furnace paints
  • Rubber-based resins for the rubber industry

Oil-based resins

  • Petro resin dry square paints, traffic paints
  • Phenolic resins for molding, high-temperature tolerance

Resins can be classified from different perspectives. The types of resins are very diverse, which was mentioned in this post.

The most widely used resins in paint making:

  • Epoxy resin.
  • Epoxy hardener.
  • Acrylic resin.
  • Polyurethane resin.
  • Alkyd resin.

The most widely used resins in fiberglass:

  • Isophthalic polyester resin.
  • Orthophthalic polyester resin.
  • Vinyl ester resin.
  • Epoxy resin.
  • Phenolic resin.

The most widely used resins in powder paint

  • Powder epoxy resin.
  • Powdered polyester resin.

Manufacture of industrial resins

Most resins are usually produced as a centrifuge and process. In the domestic resin flooring process, a chemical reaction occurs inside the reactor, which can be endothermic or exothermic. The reaction inside the reactor is a polymerization reaction, and the molecular mass is controlled to prevent the gelation process. Production of industrial resins can be accompanied by the production of by-products, which must be separated in the separator.

Resin hardening mechanism

There are several mechanisms for hardening resins and film formation.

  1. Chemical reaction at ambient temperature in two-component resins such as epoxy and polyurethane.
  2. Chemical reaction at high temperatures such as gore dyes, melamine, and urea.
  3. Reaction with air oxygen in single component paints or alkyd paints.
  4. Mechanism and evaporation of solvent and formation of paint films such as vinyl paints.
  5. Reacts with air humidity such as polyurethane and single-component systems.
  6. Polymerization reaction between resin monomers by primer such as polyester resins.

Industrial uses of resins

  • Making paint.
  • Fiberglass production.
  • Adhesive industry.
  • Ink industry and color printing on cans.
  • water refinery.
  • Production of industrial frames.
  • Production of refractory parts.
  • Automotive industry produces anti-wear parts such as brakes.
  • Refrigeration and thermal insulation such as polyurethane insulation.
  • Sofas and chairs such as chair chairs and synthetic wood
