Resinography is the graphic description of resins used to explain variations in properties or behavior with changes in composition or treatment. A characteristic graph plots changes in composition with properties and illustrates critical points with macrographs, micrographs, drawings, diffraction patterns, interference phenomena, or absorption spectra.
While resinography is 17 years old, this is the first symposium of its kind on the subject. It presents a brief review of techniques borrowed from metallography, mineralography, petrography, and biology, but the symposium features methods peculiar to the investigation of resins, polymers, and related plastic materials.
