Vinyl Ester or vinyl ester resin is a resin manufactured by the esterification of epoxy resin with methacrylic acids. It has properties similar to thermosets and is used as a substitute for epoxy and polyester materials. It is applied to the surface through coating, slurry or trowelled surfacing. It offers superior chemical resistance and thus it is used in applications requiring high chemical resistance. Due to its superior resistance to salty ocean water, it is used in hulls, decks and even as tie coating materials for marine vessels.

Vinyl Esters have wide adoption for applications involving superior chemical resistance exposure to harsh environmental conditions. For instance, in marine applications (boat, ships, yacht etc.), vinyl ester resin is used for its high water barrier resistance and ability to prevent osmatic blistering. In the chemical and other industrial plants, it is used for storage tanks, process vessels, pressure pipes, chimney lining, electrostatic precipitators, scrubbers, etc. Often its glass-fibre filled grades are used in building & infrastructure, aerospace & defence and other applications.

Key Market Driver -

Wide adoption in vinyl ester for industrial applications due to ability to withstand extreme conditions and corrosive environment drives the global vinyl ester market.

Key Market Restraint -

Relative high cost of vinyl esters compared to their counterpart epoxy and polyester, restricts the market growth.

However, it is relatively expensive than polyester and epoxy resin that limits its market growth. Moreover, it is toxic in nature that exposes it to various manufacturing and safety regulations. For instance, the manufacturers are required to follow regulation 8 of organic compounds in the US, to comply with the air quality norms.
