Industries that rely on FRP resins tend to be very profitable and cannot tolerate unplanned plant shutdowns or downtime. As a result, they demand products that can withstand extreme conditions for extended periods. For example, with the growing demand for lithium production, the demand for high-strength FRP resins is expected to increase. Lithium is a critical component of many electronic components and technologies, including electric vehicles and grid-scale energy storage. As the production of these technologies increases, so too will the demand for high-strength FRP resins.
However, selecting the right FRP resin is just the beginning. Proper installation is critical to ensuring optimal performance and avoiding costly unplanned downtime. Even when the correct Derakane resin is selected, improper installation can compromise its performance and lead to corrosion and other issues. Having an on-site technical expert present during installation can help ensure that everything goes smoothly and that all procedures are followed.
Selecting the right FRP resin for heavy industrial applications is crucial to ensuring proper performance and avoiding costly unplanned downtime. The INEOS Derakane family of resins offers extreme service and is specifically engineered to withstand harsh environments. The selection of the proper resin depends on several factors, including the chemicals and operating conditions. With the growing demand for renewable energy sources such as lithium production, the demand for high-strength FRP resins is expected to increase. Proper installation is also critical, and the presence of an on-site technical expert can help ensure success.
