Gum rosin WW(Califon) or Colophony that is called Pitch in Greek, is a kind of solid Resin in shape of yellow translucent pieces) color spectrum from yellow until black) that is mostly extracted conical, from pine tree and some other plants.One of the other names of this matter is called Ester gum, malic resin, Peace Grease. At Rosin gum product process, usually heat plant liquid syrup until volatile material Terpene, that is in syrup evaporate and destroy, at that time Califon will be obtained.
Gum rosin WW(Califon) properties and features.
Gum rosin WW(Califon) is an organic compound, is involved, Mono terpene, Turpentine and Resin acid. In its opaque variety, insoluble compounds in Ether are also existed. Usually, it is insoluble in water but in organic solvents (Alcohol, Ether, Benzene and chloroform (is soluble. At room temperature is Solid and brittle, and has high viscosity property also according to its weak acidic property can eliminate oxidized layers from surface, and polish them well. Among the other properties of that, can mention to adhesion improvement, gloss improvement, improve the rate of dye film hardness, improve resistance of abrasion, improve resistance to yellowing, Petrol solubility and etc.
Gum rosin WW(Califon) applications.
Gum rosin WW(Califon) is useable in producing, various surface coating, isolation materials for electronic industry, artificial rubbers, sanitary wax and adhesive, printing ink, paint industry , paper industry, as an intermediate matter for organic material synthesis, produce gum in form of turning edible Rosin gum into hydrogenic Rosin in food industry, as enamel in pharmacy in pharmaceutical Industries, as fluoride mouthwash in hygiene industry, as metal polisher in metal industry, also in form of alone or mixture with other resins, for produce, various warm traffic dyes, in paint industry.
