Coatings and Linings

Coatings and Linings

Coatings and linings made with INEOS Derakane™ epoxy vinyl ester resins have been successfully used to protect concrete and metal structures for more than 50 years. Industrial maintenance personnel rely heavily on these proven resins to maintain piping, vessels and structures in a wide variety of applications including mining, chemical processing, water treatment and air pollution control.

Derakane™ resins are a cross between polyester and epoxy resins. They carry the adhesion performance, temperature resistance and toughness of epoxy but with the low temperature cure requirements commonly found in unsaturated polyester resins.  Derakane™ resins exceed both polyester and epoxy resins in chemical and solvent resistance including acids and alkalis.

Equipment life can be greatly extended, saving both time and money, when Derakane™ resins are used to formulate corrosion-resistant coatings and linings. Derakane™ resins can be used on the exterior and interior of both new and existing industrial equipment and structures to provide:

  • Corrosion resistance to a wide variety of aggressive chemicals and solvents
  • Ambient temperature cure
  • Good adhesion to a variety of substrates
  • Low permeability
  • Excellent toughness
  • Outstanding abrasion resistance
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Extended service life
