Chemical resistance

For many years composites have been the material of choice for manufacturing components that are used in tough environments (exposure to chemicals, heat, mechanical impact). As these materials bring durability and continued strength, they are the preferred alternative over traditional materials like steel and concrete.


Great Chemical Resistance

Components based on Atlac®, Palatal® and Synolite™ product series have been extensively used in applications that require excellent corrosion resistance, since they have a long performance track record and ensure industrial processes can run continuously as expected. Material solutions for acids, bases, water, seawater, and many organic solvents are available from AOC.


Support in Resin Selection

AOC is working closely with part fabricators, engineering companies and process operators to specify our resins. We have the ability to help you in making the best resin selection for your application, optimized for the specific chemical environment (temperature, chemical type, exposure time). We can offer insights from our Chemical Resistance Information System (CRIS), that builds on years of chemical resistance testing on our resins, combined with the experience gained in many projects around the world. Please contact us for more information.

Please click here for downloading our Chemical Resistance Guide. In this brochure you can find information on our most important vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester resins used in corrosion resistant applications. We have listed the maximum temperatures at which laminates based on these resins have demonstrated a good service life, and/or shown positive test results in accordance with the mentioned test methods.
