Technobell - New type of UPR solution for fiberglass boat industry

Technobell has developed a new type of Unsaturated Polyester Resin (UPR) for the fiberglass boat industry. The new UPR is formulated to minimize friction between surfaces in order to obtain faster water flow due to the so called lotus effect. In addition to its extremely high UV-resistance characteristics, excellent resistance to atmospheric impacts and a high level of self-cleaning, the new solution also helps reduce fuel consumption and prevents material deposition on boat structures.

The crude oil price is in decline and large petrochemical companies are heavily investing in Oil & Gas downstream processes, including the Unsaturated Polyester Resin (UPR) production technology because the UPR market has been constantly growing for the past two decades.

#technobelltechnology has a long-time experience in UPR production technology and is constantly investing in R&D in order to provide state-of-the-art solutions for our clients. With advanced technological solutions and deep understanding of the process we can propose optimization and combination of existing production lines allowing simultaneous production of Orthophthalic, Isophthalic, DCPD and Vinyl ester resins as well setting up new production lines with unmatchable performances.

Technobell’s licensed UPR technology enables production with low glycol excess (its concentration in waste reaction is max 3 wt.%) and increased production yield (by using DCPD) which overall significantly reduces the production costs and environmental impact.

 

 

 

Technobell Mandrel Casing Construction

Making big CFW machines for GRP pipes production starts with engineering and continues with manufacturing. Usually is not a problem, but when the part that needs fine machining is bigger than your car… then you need the tools and the knowledge on how to do it.

Technobell team is composed of highly skilled engineers with extensive experience in mechanical, automation and chemical engineering, managed by professionals with long term experience in large and complex projects.

 

Technobell’s isophthalic resin TB RP 716.09

Technobell is a producer of tailor made DCDP, orthophthalic, isophthalic and vinylester resins. We use our know-how to develop and produce more than 90 different types of resins for a wide range of application. Our goal is to find the best solution and to offer support in the application development.

Technobell’s isophthalic resin TB RP 716.09, a highly elastic resin with excellent temperature resistance, was recommended to a reputable pipe manufacturer to produce a pipe fully made of isophthalic resin for hot water transportation. Other brands of resin were tried too, but only pipes produced with Technobell unsaturated polyester resin 716.09 passed successfully all the tests. The pipe is now ready to serve its purpose for at least the next 50 years.
