Unsaturated Polyester Resin Production Cost Analysis 2020

Unsaturated polyester resins are unsaturated synthetic resins, which are created by a reaction between dibasic organic acids and polyhydric alcohols. Unsaturated polyester resins can be used in sheet moulding compound, bulk moulding compound, and in laser printers as a toner. 

Unsaturated polyesters resins are examples of condensation polymers that are created by a reaction of polyols or polyhydric alcohol and other organic compounds with multiple alcohols and the hydroxy functional groups, with saturated or unsaturated dibasic acids. Solid cross-linked unsaturated polyester resins are rigid, light, good electrical insulators, water repellents, and have exceptional resistance to wear and high temperature. Due to their favourable properties, they find extensive applications in wood paints, composite materials, gel coat for automotive, boats, and bathroom fixtures, and flat laminate, corrugated, and ribbed panels, among others.

Wall panels that are often assembled with polyester resins reinforced with fibreglass are most commonly used in the restaurants, kitchens, restrooms, and other areas that require washable low-maintenance walls. They are also widely used in cured-in-place pipe applications. These are generally based on the isophthalic acid and cut with styrene at high levels—usually up to 50%.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Unsaturated Polyester Resin production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
