Fabrication of tanks and reservoirs for the transport and storage of aggressive liquids.
Benefits and characteristics
It is appropriate for manual lamination or machine molding and for the application of loaded and encapsulated systems. The resin is provided with 70% solids but can be diluted with styrene or other reactive monomer to reduce viscosity and facilitate application. As the resin is not pre-accelerated, gel time can be adjusted varying the percentage of cobalt and peroxide to adapt it to the process’ conditions.
