Marte resins set for Advanced Engineering

UV stabilised resins are available for many industrial and marine applications.Italy-based Marte, a manufacturer of unsaturated polyester resins, will be exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering trade show, which takes place in Birmingham, from 1-2 November.

Established in 1992, the company produces and markets orthophtalic, isopthalic, DCPD, low styrene content and unique styrene-free resins for international markets, with a focus on tailor-made formulations.

Having an installed production capacity equal to 25,000 T/year, the company has developed a complete range of unsaturated Polyester resins for a wide variety of applications. “Different state-of-the-art resins have been gaining special attention on the international markets in and outside Europe,” the company reports.

On offer

Ares P 809 N 7 LV is highly appreciated for artificial marble thanks to the excellent results shown in final applications performed with Breton technology. It has also been endorsed by Breton expertise R&D for its outstanding polishing behaviour and mechanical features (reduced shrinkage and no cracks).

Ares P 167 LV is a styrene free resin, ideal as carrier for pigments for production of colour pastes. It has low viscosity and very high absorbance of pigments and fillers, providing good system compatibility and very high stability, according to the manufacturer.

ARES P 255 ASL 7-M is an ISO / NPG acrylic modified resin for solid surface with good colour and brilliance. It has good wetting of fillers and good compatibility with pigments. The resin shows high chemical resistance and very good mechanical properties and low shrinkage.

ARES P 945 N 15 is an ortho – DCPD resin for hand-made panels productions. According to the company, it has an excellent wetting of fiberglass and good mechanical properties, good elongation and high dimensional stability. The resin has a limited styrene content and a controlled exothermic peak.

ARES P 825 N7 is a DCPD resin accelerated with amine for car body putties production. The resin has a low styrene content, a low shrinkage, and a very good adhesion on zinc and other metals supports. It has very good wetting of talc and other fillers for production of putties with very good curing and easy sandability. No tacky surface also on very thin layers.

ARES resins

“ARES resins are used for gelcoats productions for the excellent colour and transparency and for the good compatibility with different pigments and fillers. They are said to have very low yellowing and good weathering properties. UV stabilised resins are available for many industrial and marine applications,” the company explains.

“As early as 1992 already in the forefront in the supply of DCPD resins with low styrene content and exceptionally low emissions, in the last few years the company has focused on the development of eco-friendly solutions.”
