Earlier this year the company introduced its Polylite 31325-00, a non-promoted, medium-reactive, low-viscosity unsaturated polyester resin derived in part (25%) from soybean oil. The material is a general-purpose molding resin for sheet molding compound (SMC), bulk molding compound (BMC), and pultrusion applications. The soy-based resin is said to yield laminates with mechanical properties/performance that are similar to general-purpose SMC, BMC, and pultrusion resins. [email protected]
