Vinyl Ester Resins
Vinyl Ester Resin is considered to be a hybrid of polyester and epoxy resins—meaning its handling characteristics, properties, and even price generally fall just between the two.
- Vinyl ester is formulated for maximum corrosion resistance to most fuels, vapors, and chemicals.
- It's heat resistant and blended for durability.
- It features excellent impact strength and high tensile elongation.
- It's low viscosity, so it's easy to pour and just right for vacuum infusion.

For its combined qualities, Vinyl Ester is often chosen for repairing water and chemical storage tanks, as well as boat hulls.
Keep in mind, Vinyl Ester Resin has a more limited, three-month shelf-life, so it should only be purchased on a project-to-project basis. In all cases, it is meant to be used with reinforcement to make hard laminate parts.
