Carbon Fibre / Vinylester Matrix Composite - Properties - Supplier Data by Goodfellow

Background

Vinyl ester resin is used as an alternative to polyester and epoxy materials in matrix or composite materials. It has low resin viscosity than polyester and increased corrosion resistance and ability to withstand water absorption.
