- n. The technical name of a process to which the harder resins, amber and copal, are subjected preparatory to using them in making varnishes. More than mere liquefaction being required, a partial destructive distillation is brought about by the continued action of heat, and volatile products are given oil, after which the residue becomes soluble in turpentine and some other solvents.
