Resins, Compounds and Polymers

What's the difference between a resin and a compound? What's a polymer? And why are there so many words with "polymer" as a suffix?

Alloy - A term sometimes used to denote a blend of polymers or copolymers with other polymers or elastomers

Copolymer - A compound resulting from the chemical reaction of two chemically different monomers with each other

pelletsCompound - The mix of a polymer with all the materials necessary for the finished resin to be used by the processor

Flame Retardant Resin - The result of reactive compounds that become an integral part of the polymer structure and/or additive chemicals that are physically dispersed in a polymer to retard or reduce the polymer's tendency to burn

Homopolymer - A polymer consisting of only one monomeric (a molecule that can be bonded to other identical molecules) species; polymers with a single type of repeat unit

Mer - The repeating structural unit of any high polymer

Monomer - A single molecule which can join chemically with another monomer or molecule to form a polymer or molecular chain

Polymer - A high molecular-weight organic compound, natural or synthetic, the structure of which can usually be represented by a repeated small unit, the MER. Synthetic polymers are formed by addition or condensation polymerization of monomers and could be classified as elastomers, thermoplastics, thermosets and synthetic fibers.

Polymerization - The chemical reaction in which the monomer molecules are linked together to form polymer chains

Random Copolymer - A copolymer in which the molecules of different types of monomer are randomly arranged in the polymer backbone

Resin - An organic substance of natural or synthetic origin characterized by being polymeric in structure. Most resins, though not all, are of high molecular weight and consist of long chain or network molecular structure. Usually resins are more soluble in their lower molecular weight forms.

Synthetic Resin - Any complex organic liquid or solid formed from simpler molecules by polymerization or condensation; any of various chemically modified natural resins
