Title: CORROSION RESISTANT VINYL ESTER RESIN FOR POTABLE WATER SERVICE
Abstract: Asset owners that operate in a wide variety of chemical environments require materials of construction certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for use with potable water. These challenging applications include desalination plants, bleach handling facilities and municipal wastewater treatment operations. DERAKANETM 411-350 WSR epoxy vinyl ester resin (VER) has been developed and approved for the fabrication of piping, vessels, and ducting that require NSF 61 certification for these applications. This new, versatile bisphenol-A epoxy vinyl ester resin is designed for use with multiple curing systems, and enables the fabrication of NSF-approved piping greater than ½” diameter and vessels greater than 5 gallons in volume with the same proven corrosion performance as industry leading DERAKANETM 411 epoxy vinyl ester series resin. This paper will describe results from NSF 61 certification testing, typical mechanical properties and recommended applications for this new corrosion resistant DERAKANETM resin.
