These resin systems use catalyst and promoter systems similar to those used with the polyesters. They show excellent resistance to severe oxidizing environments and generally exhibit better resistance than polyester and epoxies in applications such as bleach, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, chlorine-caustic systems, and calcium and sodium hypochlorite. In some areas they also show better solvent resistance, but not as good as that of the furanes. Physical properties are in general very similar to those of the polyesters.
The combination of these materials producing the first FRP product resulted from the need for a strong plastic material to serve as windows for radar vanes. Hence, in 1944 unsaturated polyester resins and glass reinforcement opened up a new field in the plastics industry. Polyesters traditionally have been the most widely used resins for FRP combinations. The chemistry of polyesters is rather complex. Basically, when an organic acid and an alcohol are reacted, they produce an ester. When the alcohol is polyhydric and the acid is polybasic, complex esters known as alkyds are formed.
Alcohol solutions of the powder or granular resin are known as varnishes. Their color properties are limited, ranging from dark amber to black. Traditionally, the phenols were derived from coal tar. They are manufactured either by the sulfonation process, chlorobenzene process via liquid phase or by the regenerative process (catalytic vapor phase). Formaldehyde (HCHO), a colorless gas, is soluble in water, alcohol and ether. When phenol and formaldehyde are combined in the presence of a catalyst, phenolic resins are produced by a condensation reaction.
