Spontaneous Polymerization Resin Blends

There are many dual component polymers available in the market that illustrate this behavior. Most of them are epoxys and are excellent materials as well as versatile. Some dual polymer mixes are in a 1:1 proportion or similar and could be counted in the auto-initiated sub-category of polymers. Nevertheless, for our purposes, both cases have identical applications and usage parameters.

Resins, Oligomers, Monomers

Putty, fast hardening Epoxy

Polyester Resins (Isophthalic, Vinyl Ester, Marine, General purpose, Casting Resin, Surfboard Resin, Gelcoat)
