Beginning in August, Epovia corrosion-resistant vinyl ester resins will be available in the U.S. market from Cook Composites and Polymers (CCP).

Epovia vinyl ester resins are designed for use in fabricating industrial equipment and structures, and provide a significantly enhanced defence against various kinds of corrosive chemicals when compared to many other plastics and metallic materials.

“These resins have outstanding resistance to a long list of caustic chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and solvents at either room temperature or elevated temperatures,” said Dwayne Pinnell, Product Manager for CCP. “This makes them ideal for use in glass-lining, rubber coating, and metallic materials.

“In addition, resins in this series offer high impact resistance,” he continued, “as well as substantial cost advantages throughout construction, installation and continued use.”

Typical processes for Epovia applications include pultrusion, filament winding, compression molding, RTM, and hand lay-up. Typical end-use applications are absorption towers, process vessels, storage tanks, pipes, hood, scrubbers, ducting and exhaust stacks.
