Production of Epoxy Resins
A wide range of epoxy resins are produced industrially and can be used for multiple applications. These include coatings, adhesives and composite materials. The chemistry of these epoxies and the range of availability commercially allows for a broad range of cure polymers to be produced. For the most part, epoxies are best known for their adhesion abilities, resistance to chemicals and heat, their mechanical properties and they ability to insulate electricity. They are easy enough to modify to fit a specific criteria and their variations make them a widely used material.
