We introduce a systematic method for densification, i.e., embedding a given chain into a dense one preserving certain identities, in the framework of FL algebras (pointed residuated lattices). Our method, based on residuated frames, offers a uniform proof for many of the known densification and standard completeness results in the literature. We propose a syntactic criterion for densification, called semianchoredness. We then prove that the semilinear varieties of integral FL algebras defined by semi-anchored equations admit densification, so that the corresponding fuzzy logics are standard complete. Our method also applies to (possibly non-integral) commutative FL chains. We prove that the semilinear varieties of commutative FL algebras defined by knotted axioms xm=xn (with m,n>1) admit densification. This provides a purely algebraic proof to the standard completeness of uninorm logic as well as its extensions by knotted axioms.
