Vinyl ester resin

Making great strides for a better tomorrow

Vinyl ester resins excel in terms of strength and corrosion resistance.

Ripoxy® (vinyl ester resin) is a modified epoxy resin. Ripoxy has characteristics of epoxy resins, such as high strength, toughness and alkali-resistance; but it cures faster, has better curing properties at low-temperatures and lower viscosity than epoxy resins.
This translates to superior workability and resistance to a wider range of chemicals (resistance to acids and solvents). It has good shock absorption and adhesive properties, as well as good photocuring properties and resistance to water.
Ripoxy is used as a corrosion-resistant material, an electronics material, and in the chemical and civil engineering fields.
