AOC Starts European Production of Vipel Vinyl Esters

18 September 2009

Vipel vinyl ester resins, such as bisphenol A vinyl esters and high elongation vinyl esters will now be available from AOC manufacturing facilities in Europe.

The Vipel vinyl esters combine with Vipel unsaturated polyesters to form a range of materials which manufacturers say will help to optimize the manufacturing process and meet performance specifications.

Vipel vinyl esters are currently used in the energy, chemical processing, food processing, infrastructure and other sectors where equipment is exposed to highly corrosive environments. Vipel vinyl ester technologies are also available for marine laminates, barriers and skin coats.

According to AOC, Vipel corrosion-resistant resins can be formulated to be process-friendly in filament winding, hand lay-up, spray-up, resin transfer molding, resin infusion and other composite manufacturing operations.
