Vinyl Ester Resin

Compared to polyester resins vinyl ester resins are stronger and have a higher impact resistance. In addition, vinyl ester resins offer a great corrosion resistance. Vinyl ester resins are used around the globe within the airplane, wind energy and sports equipment industries.

Our product range includes Ashland’s Derakane and AME epoxy vinyl ester resins. AME premium marine resins have for decades been the preferred and trusted resins for many of the boat builders around the globe. They have been designed exclusively for boat builders and great care has been taken to address performance and production needs. In addition, AME resins are suitable for building tools. AME 6000 T-35 skin coat is especially designed for this purpose. It is used as a skin coat that is put between the tooling gelcoat and tooling resin in the laminate. AME 6000 T-35 skin coat is one of Ashland’s three product XO tooling concept, consisting also of Ashland’s Maxguard GT tooling gelcoat and Aropol XO tooling resin.

Derakane expoxy vinyl ester resins offer higher durability, superior heat resistance, low maintenance and high performance for extremely challenging environments. It is primarily used for making FRP storage tanks, vessels, ducts, and on-site maintenance projects, particularly in chemical processing and pulp and paper operations.

441-400 DerakaneA low styrene-content resin that has an optimized epoxy backbone and resultant superior thermal properties and corrosion resistance performance. It has a superior shelf life compared to conventional vinyl ester resins. It is used for fabricating FRP storage tanks, vessels, ducts, and on-site maintenance projects, particularly in chemical processing, pulp and paper operations. 
411-45 DerakaneThe industry standard vinyl ester resin due to its wide range of end-use applications and ability to be used in a wide range of fabrication techniques. Equipment fabricated with it has superior elongation and toughness and better impact resistance and less cracking due to cyclic temperature pressure fluctuations and mechanical shocks. In addition, it holds up well in corrosive environments. It is used for fabricating FRP storage tanks, vessels, ducts, and on-site maintenance projects, particularly in chemical processing, pulp and paper operations.
