    Resins are the components of a liquid that will set into a hard lacquer or enamel-like finish such as automotive paints, nail polish and epoxy resin. Resins can be organic, derived from plants such as coniferous trees, and can also be synthetic such as liquid monomers of thermosetting plastics that are not derive from plants.


    Resins can be transparent to opaque, and so can benefit from wither transmittance or reflectance measurement modes depending on the opaqueness of the resin. If you are measuring both opaque and translucent/transparent samples, you may prefer to select an instrument that measures in both transmittance and reflectance mode.
