Ashland products are proven to withstand tough environments over extended periods, and this level of performance contributes to a more sustainable world by reducing waste."

In addition to exhibiting the latest innovations, Ashland experts will provide updates and exchange ideas on industry trends during two Ashland seminars. The topics include "Derakane™ Epoxy Vinyl Ester Resin FRP in the mining industry," and "Ashland Solutions for Wind Energy."

Ashland's expertise and competencies cover manufacturing unsaturated polyester resins and epoxy vinyl ester resins, gelcoats, bonding pastes, adhesives and specialty products for a variety of applications including corrosion resistance, wind energy and automotive.

Visitors to Ashland's booth # A810 can learn more about the innovative products available to the composites industry:
  • FRP based on Derakane™ and Hetron™ epoxy vinyl ester resins has been used for decades for corrosion resistant applications in mineral processing and other harsh environment. Research has proven that these products outperform stainless steel and rubber lined steel in terms of durability and cost. They are also the ideal materials for flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, helping coal-fired power plants protect the structural integrity of components used to clean exhaust before its release into the atmosphere;
  • Aropol™ and Envirez™ unsaturated polyester resins make high-performance wind composite parts including blades and nacelles possible. Ashland is committed to providing solutions that add efficiencies, optimize performance and reduce waste; and
  • Maxguard™ and Enguard™ gelcoats for superior in-mold coatings to deliver high protection value and outstanding cosmetic properties, and Pliogrip™ structural adhesives for composite bonding in automobile assembly, boat manufacturing and wind energy blade applications.

Ashland Performance Materials is the global leader in unsaturated polyester resins and epoxy vinyl ester resins. In addition, it provides customers with leading technologies in gelcoats, and pressure-sensitive and structural adhesives.
