Opinions on gum rosin trend in 2009 collected from industrial participants and experts
There are many reasons: China limited gum rosin capacity significantly; crop yields were lower than usual; already-decreased supplies were stretched to the limit when demand increased in industries from rubber to adhesives and even ink; gum rosin has been used as a substitute for other crude-based commodities in short supply.
The storage modulus of the particular tackified vulcanizate dropped significantly when the temperature passed through its softening point, 72-74[degrees]C for gum rosin, 106-108[degrees]C for petroleum resin, and 103-105[degrees]C for phenolic resin.
Moreover, since most gum rosin is exported through the port of Huangpu, the price and stock of gum rosin reflect general domestic market trend.
China is the top producer of gum rosin in the world.
China is the largest producer and exporter of gum rosin in the world.
In recent few years, more and more local companies and multinationals are engaged in the deep-processing of gum rosin, and the domestic consumption of gum rosin has been increasing.
