Vinyl ester is a thermoset matrix resin that is among the most widely used in the composites industry. It is often used in environments that require high strength and corrosion resistance, including the marine, industrial, energy and infrastructure markets.
An array of case studies showcases the growing acceptance of fiberglass/vinyl ester composites in harsh industrial environments.
