Polyester resins are widely used according to their usages and implementation.

Unsaturated polyesters UP or UPR are included in several families. The most common are:

Aliphatic homopolymers PGA   PLA   PGL    PCL     PHA    PHB

Aliphatic copolyesters PEA  PBS

Semi-aromatic copolyesters FBT PTT  PEN (PET and PEC saturated thermoplastics)

Aromatic homo- and copolyesters Polyacrylates

Vinylester resins, occasionally called "polyester-epoxy hybrid resins" often have applications which are identical to polyester applications.

These resins have extensive applications:

For composites

resins for stratification

for automobile equipment

for moulds

for coating (encapsulation)

multi-purpose

for SML compression (sheet moulding compound)

for BMC injection (bulk moulding compound)

for MMC injection (mineral moulding compound)

for CIC (continuous impregnated compound)

for marine - stratification and top coating (gel coats)

For coating

Undercoating   primers, varnishes, lacquers, inks, adhesives, etc.

Top coating pain, lacquers, varnishes, etc.

Gel coats

The following implementation procedures are used for composites:

Contact moulding (spiked rollers)

Simultaneous spraying

Low pressure injection (transfer of RTM resin)

Vacuum, infusion, oven moulding

By filament winding

By SMC or BMC compression machines

Cleaning manufacturing pilots, implementation tools, machine environment, machines or fresh residual spots always require the use of solvents.

Note: Although the European Directive on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) has been challenged by virtue of its applicability by the Fibre-reinforced Plastics industry regarding the terminology of the stratification of wood and plastics (based on styrene emissions: reactive monomer, in which the unsaturated polyester is dissolved, but which copolymerises with the reactive sites of unsaturated polyester chains to form a three-dimensional solid known as thermosetting plastic), the regulatory framework for using cleaning solvents cannot be disputed.

The criteria and needs relating to the use of unsaturated polyester cleaning solvents are different depending on whether they involve:

RESIN PRODUCTION UNITS, RESIN MANUFACTURERS

normally ICPE (installations classified for environmental protection) concerned by the IED Directive, establishment of a SMP, limitation of VOC emissions, control and recycling of industrial waste. The solvents used must be quick to dissolve when cleaning tanks, reactors and mixers between two batches if there is no on-going sequence or when bleeding pipe or filling systems. This cleaning must be even more thorough when a hardener is manufactured after a resin, in the same pilot.

Typical solvents n-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP), n-ethylpyrrolidone-2 (NEP) and gamma butyrolactone (GBL) give good results but are classed CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic to reproduction).

IMPLEMENTATION UNITS or WORKSHOPS, APPLICATORS, USERS

of polyester resins, Applicators, Users

Acetone is very often used in this case. Contrary to the needs of producers, implementation requires mixing a resin and a hardener. The cleaning operation must take the same time as the TECAM gel (mix use duration).

More than 1 tonne of acetone, if stored or used, falls under SEVESO III and must be declared or a request for authorisation must be submitted to DREAL (Classified establishments inspection). The regulatory obligations therefore become the same in terms of the IED directive and the establishment of a SMP (solvent management plan).

Apart from being highly flammable CAT 2, acetone presents no toxic hazard.

Refer to INRS toxicity sheet no. 3 Acetone Case 67641, revised April 2016

  • Highly flammable Cat 2 flashpoint -18°C closed tank
  • Irritant, irritation of the skin and mucous membranes, severe ocular lesion Cat 2
  • Depression of the nervous system in high exposure
  • Neurological effects, headaches, vertigo or comas in certain convulsive cases
  • Digestive effects, nausea, vomiting, hematemesis
  • Specific toxicity for certain target organs
  • Narcotic effect Cat 3
  • Art. 4412-149 of the Labour Code OEL
