Rosin Q & A
(Questions and Answers)
What is Scalding Rosin?
Scalding Rosin is powdered natural rosin used in pig scalding process. Sprinkle
the powdered rosin over the hair before pulling the hair our by scrapers. Rosin
gives a good grip to the hair so that it can be removed easily. Both the
Brazilian rosin can be used as the scalding rosin; however, you must grind
them as good as you can before use. Adding some hydrated lime to the scalding
water also helps to loosen the hair and make it easy to remove. For best results
the lime is added to the scalding water from the beginning, but the powdered
rosin is sprinkled over the skin before scraping.
