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. They are often mixtures of organic compounds, principally terpenes. Many plants, particularly woody plants, produce resin in response to injury. The resin acts as a bandage protecting the plant from invading insects and pathogens.
A viscous hydrocarbon secretion of many plants, particularly coniferous trees.
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.
Any synthetic compound of similar properties.
To apply resin to.
Derived from acrylic acid or acrylonitrile.

“When it comes to painting, i prefer using acrylics as my medium.”
A painting executed using such a paint.
A thick sheet of plastic.
A liquid coating system based on an acrylic resin
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
