    Polymers/Resins

    When identical simple molecules (monomers) come together and link up in a chain-like fashion, they form a polymer. The chemical reaction that forms a polymer is called polymerization. There are natural polymers (often referred to as biopolymers), such as cellulose, rubber and DNA, and synthetic polymers, such as polyethylene, nylon and PVC. Most resins are polymers.
