Explanation:
I know about "heat curing" from dentistry (I don't know what your text is about), so I can tell you the terminology used in this field. "Rosin" is little used but you still see it sometimes. Also, I agree w. Bruno that "resin" should be singular in English (the "or" in Italian needs the plural "resine", but the English does not).

The links below are just a couple of examples from the hundreds of hits I got.

Ta-ta,

Floriana

Explanation:
I have found dozens of references to phenolic resins and melamine resins, which are thermosetting.
They are two different types of thermosetting resin.

I must admit I'm not quite sure why my friend Floriana (for whom I have the greatest respect, so I'm truly puzzled here) is saying I should not be using the plural in English.

A corrected suggestion is "thermosetting phenolic and melamine resins"

These are some of the references I did find:
