Mortar

Epoxy

  • Good overall chemical resistance (except against oxidizing agents) but less than polyester or vinyl ester.
  • Used in less aggressive environments.
  • Outstanding adhesion to most surfaces.
  • Moisture tolerance.

Furan

  • Extremely high resistance against acids, alkalis and solvents.
  • High temperature resistance.
  • Especially suitable for linings in aggressive chemical appliances (reactors, autoclaves, cooling towers, gas-cleaning acid towers.
  • Long shelf life.

Phenolic

  • Excellent chemical resistance to most concentrated acids.
  • Used in pressure acid leach reactors with carbon brick linings.
  • Good adhesion and residual expansion keep linings in compression.

Polyester

  • Precursor to vinyl ester mortars, similar in nature but with slightly less chemical resistance.
  • Used in chemically contaminated situations, as its rapid cure will allow it to outperform other resin mortars.

Potassium silicate

  • High chemical resistance to most concentrated acids.
  • Excellent high temperature resistance.
  • Used in pressure acid leach reactors, sulfuric acid plants and chimneys.

Vinyl Ester

  • Used extensively in the Pulp and Paper industry, in machine chests, storage tanks and bleaching towers.
  • Resistance to a wide range of oxidizing and non-oxidizing acids, solvents, salts, bases, chlorine and chlorine dioxide bleaching chemicals.
