Composites May Make Truck Bed Corrosion a Thing of the Past

One of the biggest assets of composites has always been their superior corrosion resistance. Indeed, the automobile industry has increasingly begun to capitalize on this and other benefits of composite components ranging from body panels to firewalls. Now, this benefit is coming to a new facet of the automobile: the truck bed. Benefits of corrosion-resistant Read More…

Why We Should Use Corrosion-Resistant Composite Fasteners

Nuts, bolts and screws are common fasteners that must deal with many types of corrosion due to their use in a variety of applications. However, composite materials have the ability to take corrosion out of the equation for these products. Benefits of corrosion-resistant composite fasteners Fasteners are important to the world because they literally hold Read More…

Corrosion Resistance of Composite Materials Makes Them Ideal for Boat Fittings

The marine environment is an extremely corrosive one thanks to the highly corrosive effects of salt water, so it seems logical that composite materials are a great fit for maritime applications because of their natural corrosion resistance. In spite of this and other benefits of composite fittings, many boats are still using metal fittings that Read More…

Composites Increase Corrosion Resistance in Shipping Containers

Composites have a growing number of applications to help improve corrosion resistance in infrastructure projects, aerospace products and others. One of the biggest industries where corrosion is a major problem is the marine shipping industry. Traditional all-metal shipping containers have corrosion issues in saltwater environments, and composite containers can provide a much greater level of Read More…

Composite Resin Provides Corrosion Resistance to Mineral Processing Industry

In the mineral processing sector, hydrometallurgy uses strong acids to extracts minerals like copper, nickel and rare-earth elements from their ores. These acids can be extremely corrosive to metal surfaces like steel and aluminum. But composite materials like epoxy vinyl ester resins have proved impervious to the damage inflicted by caustic chemical environments. Polyester and Read More…

Vinyl Ester Resin: The Solution for Industrial Applications

Vinyl ester resin formulations play an important role in many industrial applications. These formulations offer increased strength, a higher resistance to corrosion, as well as improved overall durability for an array of applications. Vinyl ester resins are ideal for the manufacturing of tanks, pipes, and vessels that contain chemicals/materials that corrode metals. One of the Read More…

The Critical Role of Polyester in Corrosion Resistant Composites

Polyester resin formulations are an essential component of the most common composite structures. Manufacturers benefit from the utilization of polyester resin because the formulation provides an ease of handling, a reduced cost, quick cure, and an increase in strength. The three most widely used resins for composites molding include orthophthalic (Ortho), isophthalic (Iso), and dicyclopentadiene Read More…
