Polyester is a versatile polymer with numerous applications. Polyester, often used in combination with glass fibre, is used in sailing yachts, rowing boats and protective covers for machinery, among others. It offers flexibility in production, where properties can be tailored to the desired application. In addition, special variants of polyester can be used, such as vinylester for chemical resistance and fire-retardant polyester for fire safety.
With polyester, the possibilities and applications are truly endless, whether in water sports, automotive, construction, manufacturing or aerospace. The versatility of polyester makes it an attractive choice for various industries and offers endless possibilities for customised products. Polyester resin is available in various packaging such as 20 kg or 230 kg drums.
Polyestershoppen is an epoxy wholesaler. Because we buy large volumes, we can offer many types of epoxy inexpensively in jerry cans or drums. Besides our own brand RESION, Polyestershoppen is also a supplier of Hexion/Westlake systems.
Polyestershoppen koopt epoxy in grote hoeveelheden in (meer dan 100 ton per jaar) en vult de epoxy in bruikbare hoeveelheden machinaal af van 100 gram tot 200 kg vaten. Zo kunnen we altijd een scherpe aanbieding doen. Omdat we rechtstreeks inkopen bij de fabrikant, bieden we een breed scala aan epoxy systemen voor jouw toepassing.
Yes, this is definitely possible. Because we fill by machine and fully automatically, we can easily fill any packaging you require. We can also help you design a suitable label that meets all legal requirements.
Our epoxy resin consists largely of biocontent, including palm oil. It is also possible to order epoxy resin based on frying fat on request. Thus, we provide the most ecological solution for your business.
Schadelijke epoxy is voorzien van gevaarsymbolen op de verpakking. Deze waarschuwingen gelden voor het product in de verpakking, niet voor het uitgeharde product.
Polyestershoppen does not supply products with the GHS06 symbol (toxic) and we also try to reduce products with the GHS08 symbol (long-term health hazard) as much as possible. This way, we ensure that our range consists of the most people- and environment-friendly products in the industry.
Epoxy is suitable for many applications due to its high mechanical and chemical strength. There are many variants, each tailored to these applications. Where Polyester only adheres to certain materials, epoxy adheres to almost all materials. In addition, epoxy is suitable for lamination and protection as well as adhesion and construction. This makes epoxy very suitable for building and construction. In addition, epoxy is a safer substance to work with.
Epoxy is used in ship and yacht building in combination with glass fibre to form a strong composite material, known as glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). It is used in manufacturing and repairing yacht hulls, where the material is applied in multiple layers to increase breaking strength and maintain a high degree of elasticity. Epoxy has the advantage of being waterproof, so it does not need additional protection against moisture infiltration. However, it is slightly more expensive than polyester and not UV-resistant in an aromatic system. An aliphatic system, on the other hand, is UV-resistant.
Epoxy is used in various ways in the automotive industry. It is often used in the production of automotive parts because of its strong adhesion properties, chemical and heat resistance and excellent mechanical properties. In addition, epoxy is often used in the automotive industry as a protective coating that helps protect metal parts from corrosion and wear.
Epoxy is used in the electronics industry through a process known as "potting". In this process, a housing with electrical or electronic components is filled with electrical insulating casting resin. This process protects the components against moisture, mechanical and chemical stress and temperature influences. Epoxy resins are characterized by their excellent mechanical properties, chemical resistance, high temperature resistance, good adhesion to electronic components and high dielectric strength. They are widely used in industry to protect electrical and electronic components.
Epoxy offers several advantages in the aerospace industry, including weight savings, high strength, corrosion resistance, durability, exceptional bond strength, resistance to water and chemical corrosion and resistance to high temperatures. These properties make it an ideal material for use in this industry, although there are also some drawbacks, such as its long curing time and the need for accurate measurements during mixing.
Wind turbine blades are often made of fibreglass reinforced epoxy. Therefore the blades are very strong and lightweight at the same time. In addition, wind turbine blades made with epoxy and fibreglass are easier to repair.
Epoxy is used as a protective coating for pipelines and storage tanks because of its excellent properties such as hardness, durability, chemical resistance and fluid density. These properties make it ideal for environments where oil, grease and acids are present and for applications such as pipelines that are continuously exposed to atmospheric, chemical and mechanical influences. Epoxy coating can be applied seamlessly, which makes it extremely hygienic and easy to clean. Moreover, it is a budget-friendly option, making it a popular choice for flooring in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
In the art and design industry, epoxy is used in a variety of ways. Epoxy is often used in Resin Art, an art form that uses epoxy casting resin as a base material to create unique works of art. You can use epoxy to create various Resin Art projects, such as epoxy paintings, coasters, jewellery, trays and tables. Using epoxy offers the possibility of creating colourful and transparent effects, as it can be mixed with different pigments to achieve the desired colours.
When working with epoxy, it is important to wear personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes using a fume mask to prevent inhalation of fumes. It is recommended to use a mask with separate filters so they can be replaced in time. In addition, safety gloves should be worn (preferably made of latex or nitrile) which are resistant to epoxy. Wearing close-fitting safety glasses and suitable work clothes, such as disposable overalls, is also essential.
Working with epoxy in a well-ventilated area is crucial. Ensure there is plenty of fresh air to reduce the concentration of fumes. Avoid direct contact between epoxy and skin. Wear protective clothing and avoid spilling epoxy on the skin. If contact does occur, immediately rinse the affected skin areas with soap and water.
Store epoxy and all related materials in a safe place, out of the reach of children and unauthorised persons. Follow the specific instructions for storage and use of the product on the label or product information.
Polyestershoppen is the specialist in epoxy resins. We know that many people, learning to work with epoxy for the first time, find it difficult to decide which epoxy they need. At Polyestershoppen, we supply a very wide range of our own resins that have been carefully tested for a wide range of properties and applications. We like to help epoxy beginners get started in making this decision. We have therefore made an overview of the most important resin systems and their corresponding applications.
Choose the right type of epoxy. There are different types available, each with specific properties and applications. Make sure you select the right type of epoxy suitable for your business processes. Consider factors such as adhesion, curing time, chemical resistance and mechanical properties. Study the manufacturing processes required for epoxy and look for opportunities to optimise these processes. Improvements could include streamlining the mixing and application process, minimising waste or automating certain steps. This can help reduce labour costs and increase productivity. Research different suppliers and compare prices and quality. By negotiating prices or buying epoxy in bulk, you may be able to save costs. Please also consider the supplier's reliability and service quality. By performing regular maintenance and maintaining proper storage conditions, you can prolong the lifespan of the equipment and maintain the quality of the epoxy.
