Sunrez was founded in 1986 by Mark Livesay and Dr. Novis Smith. Over the last 36 years, Sunrez has developed a greater understanding about formulations and applications of light curing resin compositions than any other company in the world.
Sunrez specializes in the production and application UV cure resin, putty, and prepreg in thick wall fiberglass reinforced systems. Sunrez has gained this experience through intensive R&D including internal and external projects for companies world wide. Sunrez has built some of the largest UV cure composite parts and has developed the largest knowledge base in existence for light curing resin compositions. Sunrez holds key patents in the use and application of light curing resins that include technologies in the area of resin infusion (VARTM), reduction of styrene emissions, prepregging, patching, joining, repair, and new composite fabrication.
Over the last several years, Sunrez Corp has focused on infrastructure rehabilitation efforts and has pioneered the way in UV cure resin systems in both Cure-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) and the Wind energy sector. Sunrez has increasingly applied its knowledge of composite materials, coatings, and fabrication technologies to programs in support of the US military that range from increased weather resistance to lightweight armoring materials.
Sunrez Corp was saddened when founder Mark Livesay passed away on November 28, 2021. Mark was the steward of Sunrez for 36 years and built the customer focused business mindset that will continue forward as Bret Tollgaard supersededes him as the new President/CEO of the corporation.
