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:
- resins for stratification
- for automobile equipment
- for moulds
- for coating (encapsulation)
- 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)
- Undercoating primers, varnishes, lacquers, inks, adhesives, etc.
- Top coating pain, lacquers, varnishes, etc.
- 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.

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.
