Polymer Resin is a solid byproduct derived from the Crude Oil refining process. It can be refined to useful products when combined with Water.

Alternate recipes analysis[]

Polymer Resin is part of the Fuel production chain. See Fuel#Alternate recipes analysis for more info.


  1. Polymer Resin itself is one of the weakest products in Oil Refining. Compared with other production routes, you dont get much from it. But its ability to be turned into either Rubber or Plastic by just using Water still makes it a valuable part in production lines.
    • Residual Rubber makes 1 Rubber from 2 Resin and Residual Plastic makes 1 Plastic from 3 Resin ( the Polyester Fabric alt recipe makes 1 Fabric from 16 Resin )
    • This means that using Resin is a good way to make Rubber, Plastic or Fabric anywhere in a very flexible way.
  2. If you don't have access to a lot of alternative recipes, the Polymer Resin recipe can be used to double Residual Rubber production (or to slightly increase Residual Plastic production) . Otherwise it's useful in combination with the Polyester Fabric recipe to automatically produce fabric.
