thermosetting resins for the manufacture of fiberglasss-reinforced plastics (FRP), translucent building panels, sanitary wares, chemical storage tanks, automotive body patch, etc.
 
These are thermosetting resins which, when properly catalyzed, convert from a liquid state to an infusible solid. The polymerization reaction, usually termed “curing”, is initiated through the addition of an organic peroxide catalyst and an accelerator. Polyesters are used for the production of fiberglass-reinforced plastic composites such as boats, translucent building panels, sanitary ware, chemical storage tanks and ducts. Other uses include clear cast resins, bowling balls, synthetic marbles, furniture parts, and auto body patch compounds.
