Fire-Retardant Resin Meets Requirements

Thursday, March 02, 2000
Reichhold announced its Dion FR 9300 vinyl ester resin meets the requirements of MIL-R-24719 and has been accepted for use in USCG-approved construction requiring fire-retardant resins. The designation makes Dion FR 9300 the only USCG-accepted fire-retardant vinyl ester resin available. The resins are brominated, bisphenol-epoxy vinyl esters, which provide corrosion-resistance in a wide variety of acidic and alkaline environments. These tough, high-strength resins can be used to produce glass-reinforced laminates with excellent impact and stress-fatigue resistance, making them ideal for applications requiring fire retardance, resistance to corrosive environments and thermal cycling.
