Temperature is a catalyst. Are your beliefs about heating the resin in the daily tanks correct?
Many technicians which utilize polyester or vinyl ester resins tend to allocate little attention to this aspect, or think that they are fairly familiar with it, but in reality, they don’t have the elements to evaluate which is the effective influence of the temperature on the polymerization chemical processes.
In this article, we have decided to clarify this aspect and give you some basic elements in order to better comprehend the importance of efficient management of the temperature in your production process.
The polymerization speed can be managed through chemical additives and, in a very similar way, through the management of the resin temperature, offering the possibility of:
- obtaining a more effective process;
- reducing production costs;
- increasing product quality;
- optimizing the consumption of raw materials.
If your intention is to maximize your return on investment in the composites market, utilizing the filament winding technology, then this article is indispensable for you.
