Resin Formula Calculator

This tool calculates the overall density and price of a resin system (polymer resin + additives). Simply type in the amount (in parts per hundred by weight - the polymer resin is set to 100), the density (in g/cm3) and price (in $/kg or other currency/kg) of each component of the resin system (e.g. polymer resin, filler, catalyst, accelerator etc.) and click calculate. We have provided some indicative density data for common resins and additives for reference purposes, although price data has been omitted due to the variables in cost.
