We supply unsaturated polyester resins which are used primarily in the GRP (Glass reinforced Plastics) industry. Our resin is used in conjunction with a hardener known as MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide). The hardener is mixed at a ratio of 1 to 3% by mass of the resin. The hardener reacts with the liquid resin to form a strong, solid mass in the shape of the mould it is applied in.
Resins with reinforcement are used as building materials for a variety application in direct competition with wood and metal in the fabrication of various products. Resins are used in a wide range of industries including construction, marine, leisure, chemical and automotive. Some examples of products made with resin are, boats, canopies, swimming pools, tanks, pipes, auto parts etc. Resin can also be cast to make a variety of items such as ornaments, manhole covers, basins and baths etc.
