Shellac or Lacquer
The sap from the rubber tree is commonly referred to as "latex". Technically a latex is any polymer dissolved in water. The rubber tree sap happens to contain the polymer isop…rene, which has a wide variety of applications. When the isoprene is extracted from the latex it has a remarkable number of useful applications, depending on how it is processed. The most famous way to process isoprene is to "cross-link" or "vulcanize" it, which then makes a material strong enough to make tires.
Answer I used denatured alcohol-since it evaporates quickly-and sap being similar to varnish or resin. I know you're not supposed to rub carpet, but i had …no choice. I had dropped the tree on end while carring it out, so, the sap got deep into the carpet. I got a clean rag, wet it with the alcohol-gently wiped it across the carpet surface-into the middle of the stain (not pushing down-but gliding it across the surface)-then quickly soaked it up with clean paper towels. I repeated this several times-always using a clean area of the rag to apply the alcohol, and always a clean paper towel. Waste no time with the paper towel! the evaporation rate is very fast!!! It seemed like it was gone-the carpet moved freely again. Once it dried, i knew the surface fibers were clean but below was hard still. I then did the same routine with the alcohol rag and paper towels- but used my fingers like i was massaging a scalp- to clean the sides of the pile. I was affraid of getting the backing too wet-so i stopped, assessed after it dryed-then again did the problem areas that re-hardened. The alcohol re-activates the sap scent- so, if you still smell sap- theres still some there. Its been 4 days since i finished- and no color change in the carpet. (This all happened on an area rug with midnight blue, tan, burgandy, and cream fibers having sap removed from them) I also had sap that dropped on my polyurathaned maple floor. After trying to use various household products, i created shiny oil slick areas on the floor. I QUICKY wiped on the alcohol and wiped off with a paper towel and they were gone-in an instant. WARNING- do not use "GOOF OFF" on a polyurathaned floor! it dulls the finish! Answer Try using the same technic that you would if you had gum on your clothes. Take a baggie full of ice and hold it to the sap spot until it hardens then try simply pulling the sap off. If it works on gum it might work on sap.
I believe you're referring to amber, though this is a common misconception. Amber is not actually made from tree sap, but from tree resin, a substance that acts to seal wounds… in trees. When it's still in liquid form, it's used for things like varnish and adhesives. Over the course of thousands, perhaps millions, of years, it fossilizes. The most common use is in jewelry. In general, it's also admired by collectors, geologists, prehistoric archeologists, etc. Because it was once liquid, it often occurs that insects or other small creatures become trapped, freezing them in time and preserving them perfectly. Remember Jurassic Park, where the scientists are extracting DNA from a mosquito? Amber is the stone they're drilling into. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be cloning any dinosaurs anytime soon, even if we could recover a viable sample of dinosaur DNA.
Amber is formed.
They collect latex from the rubber tree by tapping it and let it drip into a bucket and wait till it stops. It is then processed and various chemicals added, predominately su…lphur to allow it to be hard and still flexible at the same time.
Tree sap , is the name of the liquid that comesfrom an open wound or cut in a tree.
Yes yes it does cause you use that rubber to make tires for your car
Sap is the blood of a tree. It circulates sugar and water to thecells of the tree.
Another name for tree sap is PITCH. Thanks for taking my answer!! Answered by, Grace Deering try Resin also Answered by Andrew Ball
Black Walnut sap is not poisonous. The sap can be cooked down similar to maple syrup. The syrup is very sweet but doesn't taste like maple syrup. Birch trees also have edible …sap.
Amber, normally translucent, yellow or yellow brown in colour - sometimes insects, dust, spore or leaf fragments can be seen trapped inside - remember the movie Jurassic Park?…
Fossilized in Amber.
you make an incision deep enough to cut through the latex vessals.
