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…
