Century Composites offers grating with three types of resin to accommodate all industrial environments

Different industries need different types of grating depending on the level of chemical resistance needed. Resin gives fiberglass grating its chemical resistance. Century Composites offers grating with three types of resin to accommodate all industrial environments.

Much like the three grades of gasoline offered at the local gas station, General Purpose (GP) resin is akin to regular unleaded fuel. GP resin is the most economical and widely used, and is sufficient for outdoor use, salt water applications and mild soaps.

Isophthalic Polyester (ISO) is “mid-grade” resin, slightly more expensive and offering a medium level of chemical resistance. The occasional splash or spill of chemicals on this type of resin will not cause deterioration. ISO resin is wax free and widely used with mold making for its extreme durability.

Premium grade resin is called Vinyl Ester (VE). VE resin offers the most chemical protection and is used in aggressive chemical environments including food manufacturing where areas need repeat and constant cleansing. This premium resin holds up well to chemicals such as bleach, hydrochloric acid as well as gasoline in underground holding tanks.
