Resins can be aqueous forms of polymers, solid forms of polymers, or highly viscous substances of plant or synthetic origins that are typically convertible into polymers

Resins are usually mixtures of organic and inorganic compounds. Some can be non-reactive or reactive or self-cross-linking. To know the proper method for cleaning the surfaces of tanks or vessels that transported these materials, one must determine the proper chemical type of the resin by reviewing the SDS.

Some typical resins are: Acrylates, Epoxy, Polyurethane, PVC or PVA, Rubber, and Styrene or Styrene-Butadiene.  (Just to name a few)

Cleaning procedures differ by the type of resin confronted, and by the degree of polymerization the material has undergone.
