What the correct pronunciation?

I think it's "Re-Source-in-ol"

I heard someone say "Re-sork-in-ol"

I'd say it like your first method.

Hi Russ,

The first one is correct. What are you doing with my fine friends at Indspect Chemicals product, if you don't mind me asking?

Let me know if you ever come over this way to go to the plant where it is made.

Wasn't using it, just came up in some discussions on waterproof glue at work! I'd read about it numerous times, but never heard anyone say the word. When I heard the second pronunciation, it just sounded wrong. :p
