Vinyl Ester - Chemical Resistance

Chemical resistance of Vinyl Ester to products as Acetone, Alcohol, Diesel oil and more.

Vinyl Ester - or Vinylester - is a resin produced by the esterification of epoxy resin with unsaturated monocarboxylic acid.

Vinyl esters have enhanced mechanical properties compared to polyesters with physical strength better impact and thermal shock resistance.

Standard epoxy vinyl ester resins are limited to 220 - 250 oF (104 - 121 oC) in most applications. High-density cross-linked products are suitable for temperatures above 250 oF (121 oC).

Vinyl ester resins offer in general excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, hypochlorites, and many solvents.
