Resin is a sticky and flammable organic substance that is not water soluble. Resin is sourced from the sap of plants and trees, usually the pine tree. And while most people think of resin as being what some fake statues, or busts come from, most people can find something that is made of resin right in their homes. In reality, there isn’t a person out there that doesn’t own something that is made out of resin. And the most popular item is clothing. So if you have something made of polyester, then you are wearing a form of the plastic that’s made from resin. It’s a really durable type of material, and of course that’s the reason it is used for work clothes and in sneakers and cloth covered seats. The airlines are known for using polyester in their seats, since its durability makes it popular. And then the fact that it can be washed quite often, and stands up to detergents, makes it a most sought after material. Fabrics and textiles shouldn’t all be the same color and design, and so lots of companies have figured out how to dye materials and to put strange designs into those materials. Because of its flammability, resin needs to lower heat to still keep it color safe. Arrow Systems, Inc., came up with a new way to make their material heat resistant, and it can create the tags you sometimes see on seat belts. Plus, its tolerance to high stress conditions makes it the perfect addition for jetliner interiors. I would really like to see these machines at work sometimes. They are faster than my printer at home, because they print from 3 to 36 inches per second!
