a·cryl·ic res·in

a general term applied to a resinous material of the various esters of acrylic acid; used as a denture base material, for other dental restorations, and for trays.

resin

(rez'in) [L. resina, fr. Gr. rhetine, resin of the pine]
1. A natural, amorphous, nonvolatile, soft or solid exudation of plants. It is practically insoluble in water but dissolves in alcohol. See: rosin
2. Any of a class of solid or soft organic compounds of natural or synthetic origin. They are usually of high molecular weight and most are polymers. Included are polyvinyl, polyethylene, and polystyrene. These are combined with chemicals such as epoxides, plasticizers, pigments, fillers, and stabilizers to form plastics.

cholestyramine resin

An ion-exchange resin used to treat itching associated with jaundice and elevated serum lipid levels. Side effects may include bloating and abdominal discomfort.

cold-cure resin

Quick-cure resin.

ion-exchange resin

An ionizable synthetic substance, which may be acid or basic, used accordingly to remove either acid or basic ions from solutions. Anion-exchange resins are used to absorb acid in the stomach, and cation-exchange resins are used to remove basic (alkaline) ions from solutions.

quick-cure resin

An autopolymer resin, used in many dental procedures, that can be polymerized by an activator and catalyst without applying external heat.
Synonym: acrylic resin; cold-cure resin; self-curing resin

self-curing resin
