Depending on the experience and expertise of the reader, this guide can serve as a reference source, a shop handbook or an educational tool. It has been prepared primarily for fabricators who may benefit from AOC resin technology to make
fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites that will be used in corrosive environments.
This publication may also prove helpful to engineers, consultants, facility managers and other decision-makers who recommend, design or use composites for their corrosion-resistant properties.
In thousands of locations around the world, FRP composites made with AOC resins have been fighting the high cost of corrosion for decades. Vipel® chemistrieshave set the global standard for large diameter water and sewer pipes, underground fuel storage tanks and sewer line rehabilitation. Applications using Vipel corrosion-resistant resin technology are also found in chemical processing plants, mineral solvent extraction operations, power generation sites and food processing facilities.
AOC continues its leadership in corrosion-resistant composites with a wide range of Vipel thermoset resins designed to resist corrosive attack from chemicals, moisture, thermal cycles and fatigue-stress. Certain Vipel products are also designed for food contact, potable water, pharmaceutical and other applications requiring regulatory compliance from such authorities as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). For specific requirements, there are Vipel resin grades for flame retardance, low smoke, higher temperature resistance and higher mechanical properties.
You can use this manual to determine which Vipel corrosion resin from AOC meets specific performance requirements without over designing – or overpricing – the application. Because Vipel resin technology is part of an engineered material system, this guide also covers: reinforcement selection, catalysts and related chemistries, performance additives, quality checks and record keeping. In addition, the guide covers important issues related to fabrication, the environment, health and safety.
