How do I choose the right resin for my fibreglass products?
Resin selection is determined by the chemical environment. Standard resin systems used are isophthalic polyesters and vinyl esters; the specific one is selected so the heat distortion temperature suits your application. Other special resins also available include chlorinated polyester and fire retardant options. A comparative corrosion resistant chart of FRP and alternative materials shows recommendations against some common chemicals. For detailed information contact Armatec.
