Interplastic Corporation’s Thermoset Resins Division has published two new marine case histories detailing the use of the division’s CoREZYN brand Vinyl Ester resins. ""From Wings to Water"" details the use of vinyl ester resin that enabled We-no-nah Canoe to develop tough, light weight laminates for use in their nationally recognized canoes. ""A Hull of Epic Proportions"" describes Intermarine Savannah’s use of CoREZYN vinyl ester resins in the vacuum infusion process (VIP) to build a 123 foot (37.5 m) long hull. The yacht was then certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), one of the leading maritime classification societies. These new case histories can be ordered from the Thermoset Resins Division or downloaded from the Interplastic web site, www.interplastic.com.
