Polyester Resin for Boats

Small damages to the hull cannot be avoided in your boat's everyday life. Polyester resin is particularly suitable for repairs, touch-ups and coverings on the topside area of your boat. Because polyester resin absorbs water, it is less suitable for use below the waterline. Due to the strong odour, the use of polyester resin is only recommended for outdoor use.  Learn more about Polyester Resin...

Advantages of polyester resin compared to epoxy resin

The biggest advantage of polyester resin over epoxy resin is that it is easier to work with. The right amount of hardener is also important for polyester resin, but the ratio is slightly more variable than for epoxy resin. Polyester resin is cheaper than epoxy resin.
 

Applying polyester resin

Polyester smells very strong as it contains styrene, especially when it hardens. It is therefore essential to use appropriate protective clothing when working with it! Polyester resin should only be used on polyester boats, never on boats made of epoxy resin, as the resin will flake off after some time. The resin should be applied at a temperature of at least 15-18° C. Polyester resin can easily be applied with glass fibre mats or with glass fabric.
