What are some interesting reactions involving resins?

    Is there a way to predict what resins form solids based off certain hardeners.

    This is a "How high is up" question; can you constrain it, please?

    There are only so many commercially successful cross linked polymers, you can look them up. As far as determining whether some new cross linking agent will cross link a particular resin, you just have to know some chemistry. All you need is functionality in the middle of the polymer chain, and a small di-functional molecule to react with the functionality of the polymer chains.
