    In ISO rules, there is a bunch of data regarding glass + polyester resin (annex C), independant of brand and manufacturer. But in the 116 pages of the rule, you cannot even find the word vinylester.

    So, are there typical (and accepted ) data for glass + vinylester resin ?

    Thanks.

    The best thing to do is to go to the manufacturers and ask for their data sheets. Here in the US, Dow Derakane (now made by Ashland???) and Interplastic's CoResyn are two common and well-known brands. Atlac is another brand name I am familiar with. Google the names for more information. Sometimes the brochures for these resins will include basic laminate properties in addition to clear casting properties.

    I hope that helps.

    These are some values of Polynt VE370SC. I believe only available in Europe, but a very nice infusion vinylester to work with.

    If anyone has similar data on this kind of stuff, I am always interested.
