Epoxy Vinyl Ester Resin
Vinyl Ester Resin
DERAKANE* 8084 Epoxy Vinyl Ester Resin is an elastomer modified resin designed to offer
increased adhesive strength, superior resistance to abrasion and severe mechanical stress,
while giving greater toughness and elongation.
DERAKANE 8084 and DERAKANE 8090 Resins are the only epoxy vinyl esters available
that offer this exceptional combination of properties.

DERAKANE* 8084 Resin is the resin of choice as a primer resin to prepare a substrate
surface (steel or concrete) for application of a corrosion resistant lining.
DERAKANE 8084 Resin can be use for RTM, hand-lay, spray-up, filament winding and
other industrial FRP applications.
For applications requiring even higher elasticity and impact resistance, DERAKANE
8090 Resin can be used.
DERAKANE 8084 Resin has exhibited chemical resistance across a broad range of
acids, bases and organic chemicals.
Resin of choice as a primer to prepare a substrate surface for application of a corrosion
resistant lining. It exhibits outstanding adhesive strength on different types of steel,
aluminum and concrete.
Superior elongation and toughness provides FRP equipment with better impact
resistance and less cracking due to cyclic temperature, pressure fluctuations, and
