DIY VE120 is a premium Vinylester laminating resin. It is extremely versatile and in our range is used as both a component resin and forms part of the DIY Eco tool range where it acts as the bonding / coupling layer  between the gel coat and the Polyester and CSM re-enforcement due to its excellent strength and dimensional stability.

The resins low viscosity gives it excellent wetting out charatericitcs for a variety of laminates. It works well with Chop Strand Matting (CSM) and carbon fibre dry cloths and also displays excellent high temperature characteristics with an HDT of 120℃ following the correct post cure procedure.

Application of this resin is recommneded by brush and when catalysed at 1.5% with DIY MEKP Catalyst you can expect a gel time of around 35 minutes depending on ambient conditions giving  the ability to process parts and projects quickly. Demould time is around 4 -5 hours when used as a component resin but overnight cures are advantageous where possible.  MEKP will be required to allow the resin to cure but is not included in the sale so please also add this to your basket if required.

Vinyl ester resins offer a far stronger laminate than polyester but do not have the UV stability so this should be taken into account when deciding on your resin system.
