The article focuses on the basic chemistry of polyesters and vinyl esters, their properties, application methods, and concerns with the materials. It discusses the dicarbonic acids that are most commonly used to control cross link density in polyesters, and technologies for curing vinyl ester resins. Topics discussed include their performance critical properties, flexibility, and chemical-resistance.
