With technological advancements in the process by which gum rosin and turpentine are produced and separated, the color of gum rosin produced became continually clearer, generating a more stable product and allowing it to be used in numerous other applications.
As it is a natural product, gum resin varies in its characteristics and chemical composition. Current distillation processes should be adapted to these characteristics, which makes producing gum rosin and turpentine at the level of quality and consistency demanded by the market a complex task.
With current and future market demands in mind, AS Resinas built the most modern plant in Brazil, with an above-average level of automation utilized in the plant. As such, AS Resinas is prepared to supply a product with elevated consistency and above-average performance.
Resin acids are diterpene monocarboxylic acids. The most common of these acids is represented by the molecular formula C20H30O2. With few exceptions, resin acids from pine trees belong to three basic classes: abietic, pimaric and isophoric acids.
- AS 15 T – Tropical Gum Rosin
- AS 90M – Mixed Gum Rosin- Elliottis and Tropical
- AS 240 E – Elliottiis Gum Rosin
- AS 1440 E – Non-Crystallizing 24h Elliottis Gum Rosin
- AS 80 FE – Non-Crystallizing Elliottis Gum Rosinmodified with formaldehyde
