Vinyl ester resins were first introduced commercially in the early 1960s. Today, they are numbered among the most important of thermosetting materials. Vinyl ester resins have been widely recognized as having an excellent resistance to a wide variety of commonly encountered chemical environments.
Vinyl ester resins are used in the fabrication of a variety of reinforced structures, including pipes, tanks, scrubbers and ducts. They are prime candidates for use in composites used for transportation and infrastructure applications, as well as the fabrication of automotive and other vehicle parts, fascia for buildings, reinforcement for bridges, etc.
In addition, Vinyl ester resins are also commonly used in coatings, adhesives, moulding compounds, structural laminates, electrical applications and military/aerospace applications. Please contact us to discuss how vinyl ester resins can contribute to your needs.
