Resins are high viscosity liquids with potentially shear sensitive (thinning) components. Resins are made up of solvents, waxes, surfactants, and semi-solid resin particles - all with various chemical compatibility concerns. Resins can be used in polyurethanes, epoxies, and other adhesives. In some cases, resins contain pigments that bring with them abrasive wear concern.
Viking Pumps are used in a wide variety of resin handling applications. In most cases, the pumps will be used for transfer and blending applications. Metering applications are also common. Pay close attention to run speed and operating temperature, as many resins are thermosetting. As such, often times abrasive resistant sealing options should also be considered.
