The CTech-LLC® VEG™ gelcoat is a high performance gelcoat based on a vinyl ester resin. This product is often preferred in the industrial field over alternative gelcoats such as polyester or epoxy resins.
The CTech-LLC® vinyl ester gelcoat (VEG™) provids extreme resistance to high deformation temperature (HDT), as well as optimal performance in repeated cycles of heating, UV light stability, and exposure to solvents and chemicals.
- Based on a premium epoxy vinyl ester resin
- Chemical resistance
- Outstanding HDT resistance
- Porosity free
- High gloss retention after several production cycles
- User friendly – ease to polish
- Good Flexibility
- UV resistance
CTech-LLC® vinyl ester gelcoat (VEG™) is recommended for use in the manufacture of high quality FRP composite tooling
To ensure maximum stability and maintain optimum resin properties, resins should be stored in closed containers at temperatures below 24°C/75°F and away from heat ignition sources and sunlight. All storage areas and containers should conform to local fire and building codes.
