What Is Eco-Resin?
"Eco-resins" are a broad, versatile class of polymer resins that all have one thing in common. They are non-toxic, renewable or solvent-free (water based).
Bio-resin (not to be confused with "bi-resin") is based entirely on natural plant and vegetable extracts or renewable resources.
This amazing and sustainable technology is shaping the future of all our casting and molding needs.
We are already seeing an impact on the use of polyester resins with products such as "bisresins", such as transparent casting resins for packaging and casting.
Jesmonite, while not strictly a "biological resin", can be used as an environmentally friendly alternative to POLYESTER GP resin. Although it is still a plastic/acrylic polymer, it is water-based and non-toxic to users, making it an "ecological resin".
Bi-resin is a chemically complex resin, but its main ingredients are sunflower seeds and soy protein. It is a crystal-clear resin that lacks the drawbacks of polyester transparent resins, although without foam, bubbles may form on all surfaces when used correctly.
Bio-resins, according to the raw materials, use in a variety of production methods. In addition to sunflower seeds and soybeans, you can also use canola seeds, potatoes, corn, cassava and yams.
Most products have almost no smell, no dangerous catalysts, no toxic vapors, and can be safely used in almost any work environment.
What's more, according to a recent study by the University of Wales and The University of Cambridge, for every tonne of eco-resin produced two and a half tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions are reduced!
Studies have shown that for every tonne of resin produced, up to seven tonnes of carbon dioxide can be captured, although the resins have yet to be officially released.
In the future, bio-resins will help reduce the harmful human impact on the environment in many ways.
Bio-resin can even by like Vernonia (an inedible weed) made of such plants, the plant in particular barren and dry soil strong growth, makes these resin production of precious "cash crops", for farmers to produce other products, workers and enterprise of many developing countries such as Ethiopia, may help reduce poverty.
Bio-resins have been a successful alternative to traditional polyurethane-based plastics in recent attempts to make more ecologically conscious plastics. Although there are no set standards for what "green" products mean, there are agreed expected outcomes: safer disposal, energy-efficient production and reduced toxic emissions are just a few of the targets manufacturers are now considering with regard to green products. Depending on the type of biological resin used and its use, biological resins can enter these categories in a variety of ways.
Most resins are non-toxic. Toxic resins are usually unsaturated and contain chlorine, sulfur, hydrogen and other chemical components. This resin usually has an odor. If ingested, it will be very uncomfortable and harmful to the human body. If soaked in resin for a long time, it is also harmful to human body.
The resin itself is non-toxic. After the physical properties of the resin are changed during processing, some unknown additives will be added. We don’t know if these additives are toxic. Naturally, additives for different purposes are different. Food additives are not included here.
In fact, resin is a secretion normally produced during the metabolism of plant tissues. It is mainly in catheters or resin catheters. Most of them are solid, unshaped, with very brittle texture and high surface gloss, only a few are semi-solid.
