Mineral Processing

Mining for solutions

With the ability to withstand extremely high temperatures (90°C) as well as the harsh acids and acid chlorides used in mineral extraction, fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) materials are rapidly replacing conventional materials such as alloys and concrete.

The resins used in FRP materials protect tanks, scrubbers, pipes and more to extend the service life of your equipment and keep your hydromet process moving. 

Cost-effective Derakane™ epoxy vinyl esters offer unsurpassed durability for mineral extraction equipment including:

  • electrowinning cells
  • storage and processing vessels
  • acid & abrasion resistant piping
  • ducting and scrubbers
  • acid plants
