A viscous hydrocarbon secretion of many plants, particularly coniferous trees.
A brand name for a transparent plastic based on methyl methacrylate esters; the term is often used generically to refer to any similar transparent plastic. It is sold in various forms, including rigid sheets which may be used as a substitute for glass in windows.
Any of various yellowish viscous liquids or soft solids of plant origin; used in lacquers, varnishes and many other applications; chemically they are mostly hydrocarbons, often polycyclic.
a transparent thermoplastic acrylic resin
Any synthetic compound of similar properties.
(transitive) To apply resin to.
Any one of a class of yellowish brown solid inflammable substances, of vegetable origin, which are nonconductors of electricity, have a vitreous fracture, and are soluble in ether, alcohol, and essential oils, but not in water; specif., pine resin (see Rosin).
Any of various polymeric substance resembling the natural resins, prepared synthetically; - they are used, especially in particulate form, in research and industry for their property of specifically absorbing or adsorbing substances of particular types; they are especially useful in separation processes such as chromatography; as, an ion-exchange resin.
any of a class of solid or semisolid viscous substances obtained either as exudations from certain plants or prepared by polymerization of simple molecules
a sticky flammable organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants (notably fir and pine)
‘clear resin had oozed to the surface, trickled down, and set’;
a solid or liquid synthetic organic polymer used as the basis of plastics, adhesives, varnishes, or other products
‘epoxy resins frequently cause dermatitis’; ‘the chassis is constructed of synthetic resin’;
rub or treat with resin
In polymer chemistry and materials science, resin is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant or synthetic origin that is typically convertible into polymers. Resins are usually mixtures of organic compounds.
