Fibreglass Resins

Resin is a viscous substance derived from plants or synthetic materials. In the context of materials science and manufacturing, resin typically refers to synthetic resins, which are polymers that can be moulded, cast, or used as adhesives or coatings. These synthetic resins are typically derived from petrochemicals and are widely used in various industries due to their versatility and properties.

Some common types of synthetic resins include epoxy, polyester, polyurethane, and phenolic resins. Each type has its own specific properties and uses.

Resins are often combined with other materials or additives such as catalysts to achieve specific properties, such as increased strength, flexibility, or heat resistance, depending on the requirements of the application.
