Soy Oil Based Polylite 31325-00 Introduced for SMC, BMC, and Pultrusion

15 February 2009

Polylite 31325-00 has been launched by Reichhold as an non-promoted, medium reactive, low viscosity unsaturated polyester moulding resin derived in part from renewable resources.

Polylite 31325-00 was developed to allow FRP fabricators the opportunity to incorporate raw materials based on renewable resources into their products. Specifically, this product is based exclusively on a soy oil content of 25% and is intended as a general purpose moulding resin for SMC, BMC, and pultrusion applications. According to Reichhold, the soy based resin yields laminates with mechanical properties/performance that are similar to general purpose SMC, BMC, and pultrusion resins.
