Vinagum is the largest manufacturer of gum rosin, turpentine, ketonic and polyester resins as well as camphor in Vietnam.
Rosin is a natural product composed mainly from resin acids isomers: abietic and pimaric. It is derived from pine tree and other coniferous trees through evaporation of fresh resin to the point of eliminating all turpentine gases. Rosin is semi-transparent, its color ranges from yellow to black, and while it is brittle in room temperature, it melts after heating up. Rosin comes mainly from the regions of Indonesia, southern China and Vietnam.
