AOC Launches Epoxy Novolac Vinyl Ester Resin for Cured-in-place Pipe

Published on 2012-01-16. Author : SpecialChem

AOC expands the industry's best selection of cured-in-place pipe resins with new Vipel® L085-PPA epoxy novolac vinyl ester. AOC created this new technology for applications that need resistance to aggressive chemical solutions and high heat.

Vipel L085-PPA Series offers proven corrosion resistance, durability and toughness in formulation packages that are designed for CIPP processing. The resin's epoxy novolac chemistry provides superior resistance to acids, bases and many organic solvents.

Vipel L085 vinyl ester also performs exceptionally well at high temperatures with a heat distortion temperature (per ASTM D648) of 300°F (149°C).

"This new technology underscores our commitment to leadership in CIPP resin development", said Fletcher Lindberg, Business Manager, Open Mold Reinforced Resins. "Our CIPP line is the most complete in the industry and also includes ultra-low volatile organic compound (VOC) resins for emission- and odor-sensitive projects, as well as renewable- and recycled-content resins. Our experienced technical service team can customize formulations to meet project-specific handling and process requirements."

Featured at Trade Shows

Vipel L085-PPA resins will be featured at the 2012 Underground Construction Technology International Conference and Exhibition, January 24-26, San Antonio, TX, USA (booth 1044), and the 2012 No-Dig Show, March 11-25, Nashville, TN, USA (booth 1001). Show visitors can learn more about the new resin and discover the benefits of putting AOC innovation and service to work on their next underground construction project.

Vipel® and EcoTek® CIPP resins from AOC process smoothly and perform impeccably time after time. AOC knows technology, lives quality and delivers service better than any other resin supplier.

About AOC

AOC is a unique global enterprise with historical roots branching in two distinct directions. The core of what comprises AOC today was formed in 1994 through a joint venture of the resin businesses of two companies - The Alpha Corporation of Collierville, Tennessee, and Owens Corning of Toledo, Ohio. Alpha was a leading producer and innovator of open mold resins while Owens Corning's domination was in closed mold resins. The divergent strengths of the two founding companies were exceptionally complementary to each other. What emerged was neither Alpha, nor Owens Corning, but a creative amalgamation of the best of two different corporate cultures and areas of expertise.

In 1998 the Alpha Corporation purchased Owens Corning's interest in the joint venture. The change streamlined the decision-making process under a single organization focused solely on meeting the needs of unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resin users.
