Pre-Press Molds 101

Rosin pre-press molds are very beneficial for rosin enthusiasts when it comes to time and yield. By using a pre-press mold, technicians can streamline the preparation process and save a lot of time when dealing with larger quantities. The mold compresses loose materials and creates a perfectly shaped 'puck' which will effortlessly fit into your rosin bag when dimensions have been chosen correctly. The mold also allows you to fit more material into each press bag while drastically lowering blowouts and breakages. Most rosin connoisseurs appreciate the time saved but will acknowledge the main reason for pre-presses are for its increased yield. The pre-press allows for even distribution of heat and pressure on the pre-pressed material, which have been associated with higher...

Rosin Bags 101

Rosin bags are used in the extraction process to filter rosin from all other unwanted material which provides you with a clean and high quality final product. The most popular rosin bags are made from nylon, polyester, silk, and stainless steel. Through various testing, focusing on levels of blowouts/breakage, yield, and cost, we've concluded that nylon provides the best results in all three categories. When choosing your micron requirement, keep in mind your starting material as it will vary depending on what you are pressing. We recommend you use a 60 or lower micron when working with kief, dry sift or hash, 90 to 120 micron for flower and trim, and 160 or higher micron for shake. Of course, this will vary...
