Our Products
The Gum Turpentine is the volatile fraction of the pine resin, a colourless liquid with a slight pine scent. 
It consists mainly of terpene hydrocarbons, with numerous applications.

We perform several tests in the lab that allow the characterization of our product: relative density; optical rotation; acid number; peroxide value; gas chromatography.
