Gum rosin is an organic compound of monoterpene, turpentine and resin acid. Also known as colophony or rosin, it is a solid form of pine oleoresin from pine trees (mostly conifers). It is produced by heating fresh liquid resin in order to vaporize the volatile liquid terpene components. It is semi-transparent and varies in color from pale yellow to amber. Rosin is brittle at room temperature, but melts at higher temperatures. It is insoluble in water and soluble in organic solvents. Gum Rosin also has a faint piny odour.
It consists mostly of different resin acids, especially abietic acid.
It is used for the manufacturing of paper, paint, soap and printing ink. Since rosin is easily softened and oxidized, in the oil paint industry, the carboxylation reaction of resin acid is usually employed to produce resinate for further use.Gum Rosin can be found in Indonesia where it is derived from the distillation of Oleo Pine Resin. Different grades of gum rosin like WW, WG and X grade are available. Gum Rosin is also found in China where they are also produced from Oleo Pine Resin.
