What Are Polyester Resins?
Polyester resins are an unsaturated synthetic resin formed by the reaction of dibasic organic acids and polyhydric alcohols. It is a resin that is used in various applications, including:
- Sheet moulding compounds
- Bulk moulding compounds
- In the toner of laser printers
- Wall panels
With the wall panels, it is typically used in restaurants, kitchens, restrooms and other areas that require washable, low-maintenance walls. These particular walls are called fiberglass reinforced plastic. And on top of home use, the Department of Transportation in the US also specifies polyester resins for use as overlays on roads and bridges. This sort of resin is known as Polyester Concrete Overlays, or PCO.
Polyester resins afford the user a wide variety of advantages. They are as followed: Adequate resistance to water and some chemicals; adequate resistance to ageing and weathering; low cost; ability to withstand temperatures up to 80°C; good wetting to glass fibers; relatively low shrinkage at between 4-8% during curing. These advantages extend to nearly anybody who uses this sort of material.
