During the 1970’s, the company began producing paper size for the paper mill industry. A decade later, Megara Resins started the production of specialties from gum rosin such as esters, maleic resins, rosin modified, phenolics and amino resins for the paper industry. The production of alkyd and acrylic resins as well as new improved gum rosin products and specialties for the concrete and pulp industry flourished during the 90’s.
