Description

Backed by a cordial vendor base, we have been able to serve a distinguished collection of Natural Gum Rosin. Gum rosin is also known as colophony or simply, rosin. It is produced from the resin collected from the coniferous trees. A ‘V’ shaped cut is marked in trunk of tree; the resin obtained is collected, and is subjected to steam distillation. The residue left after distillation of resin is gum rosin .It shows its chemical activity when dissolved in organic solvents (does not dissolve in inorganic solvents. Presence of an acid functional group (-COOH) make its usage compatible in range of elastomers. It finds a wide collage of industrial applications like in paint, rubber, ink, paper, soaps, and chewing gums and in manufacture of other chemical intermediates. It is stored in cool and air tight container (galvanized iron drum). Owing to its invincible chemical properties, our range of Gum Rosin is demanded by clients across the nation. Our clients can avail the products at affordable rates.
Due to its high dissolvability in organic solvent like alcohol, gasoline and turpentine oil, gum rosin is a basic ingredient in paints and varnishes. Rosin ester is used in making thermoplastic paints which are used as road paints to set light reflection signs for clear and distant visibility. Rosin is used as a colour carrier in making printing ink. It adheres on paper firmly, preventing the blurring of presswork.
Gum rosin is generally used in making rubber based, pressure sensitive and hot-melt adhesive. It increases the strength, softness and adhesive power. In paper industry it used as a sizing agent to prevent the ink from dispersing on paper. It makes the paper smooth and abrasion resistant. It improves the absorption of water by paper and gives proper friction to paper, to avoid slipping of paper while printing.
Gum rosin is used in making chewing gums and as an emulsifier in soft drinks. As it is a very good insulator of electricity it is used in making cable and can be used as insulating coating in various electric appliances. It is used as a flux for soldering in electrical or electronics industries and in plumbing or pipe fitting.
The unique physical properties of rosin make it the natural choice for many products and many industries including adhesive, paint, ink, textile, soap and paper industries. In addition to its extensive use in soap making, rosin is largely employed in making varnishes (including fine violin varnishes), sealing-wax and various adhesives. It is also used for preparing shoemakers' wax, as a flux for soldering metals, for pitching lager casks, for rosining the bows of musical instruments and numerous minor purposes. Gum rosin finds its consumption in rubber industry.
It softens the rubber and increases the elasticity enabling the easy kneading and extrusion. It is also used as an emulsifier in production of various kinds of synthetic rubber like SBR, ABR and chloroperene rubber. Addition of small amount of gum rosin increases the endurance to laceration.
It is used in soap industry as a substitute of aliphatic acid because of resemblance of its chemical property with aliphatic acid and lower price. It is used as an intermediate in making antiseptics, ointments, and plasters. Gum rosin’s unique capacity of increasing friction is used by gymnasts, weight lifters, baseball pitchers and by stringed instruments players to improve grip. On the basis of color and softening point it is grouped under various grades. As the color of rosin darkens its softening point decreases.
