Synthetic resins, varnishes, solvents

Synthetic resins are materials with a property of interest that is similar to natural plant resins: they are viscous liquids that are capable of hardening permanently. Otherwise, chemically they are very different from the various resinous compounds secreted by plants.

A drying oil is an oil that hardens to a tough, solid film after a period of exposure to air. The oil hardens through a chemical reaction in which the components crosslink by the action of oxygen (not through the evaporation of water or other solvents). Drying oils are a key component of oil paint and some varnishes. Some commonly used drying oils include linseed (flax seed) oil, tung oil, poppy seed oil, perilla oil, and walnut oil. Their use has declined over the past several decades, as they have been replaced by alkyd resins and other binders.

A solvent is a substance that dissolves a solute (a chemically different liquid, solid or gas), resulting in a solution. A solvent is usually a liquid but can also be a solid or a gas. The maximum quantity of solute that can dissolve in a specific volume of solvent varies with temperature. Common uses for organic solvents are in dry cleaning (e.g., tetrachloroethylene), as paint thinners (e.g., toluene, turpentine), as nail polish removers and glue solvents (acetone, methyl acetate, ethyl acetate), in spot removers (e.g., hexane, petrol ether), in detergents (citrus terpenes), in perfumes (ethanol), nail polish and in chemical synthesis. The use of inorganic solvents (other than water) is typically limited to research chemistry and some technological processes.

Catalog resins, varnishes, solvents

  • Acetone, commercial

    The product is used for synthesis of acetic anhyaride, aceton, cyanohydrine, diphenil propane and other organic products, as well as a solvent in different branches of industry.

  • Artificial varnish (thermopolymer)

    The product is a solution of petroleum resin, produced by thermal polymerization of C9 fraction (liquid products of naphtha pyrolysis) in white-spirit or heavy petrol. It is used as a film-forming component in paints and enamels production, as well as treatment of wooden, plastered and concrete surfaces prior to painting.

  • Petroleum solution (artificial varnish)

    It is a solution of petroleum resin, produced by thermal polymerization of C9 fraction (products of pyrolysis of hydrocarbons), and then dissolved in atmospheric distilled off (solvent thermopolymer). It is used for the manufacture of oil-based paints for interior and exterior use, dilution of color pastes, impregnation of wooden surfaces and plaster, manufacturing of building compositions.

  • Synthetic petroleum resin

    Synthetic petroleum resin is a product of thermal copolymerization of C9 fraction liquid pyrolysis products. Grade A is used for production of varnish, construction paints and as a film-forming agent. Grade B is used as a component in adhesive compositions for footwear industry and as a film-forming agent in production of varnishes and paints.

  • Synthetic petroleum resin "Sibplast"

    Is a product of thermal copolymerization of C9 fraction. Is used in paint, tire, rubber, adhesive industry and other sectors of the economy. Is the closest analog resin "Piroplast-2"

  • Petroleum toluene

    The product of catalytic reforming of gasoline fractions and pyrolysis of petroleum products. Applied as a raw material for organic synthesis, high-octane component of motor fuels or solvent.

  • White spirit

    Gasoline mixed solvent contains no more than 50% of each group of hydrocarbons, gasoline direct distillation of low-sulfur crude oils. Used in the manufacture of paints, varnishes, rubber industry.
