More Information on epoxy resins

  • History

    Epoxy resins have been around for over 50 years, and are one of the most successful of the plastics families. Their physical state can be changed from a low viscosity liquid to a high melting point solid, which means that a wide range of materials with unique properties can be made. In the home, you’ll find them in soft-drinks cans and special packaging, where they are used as a lining to protect the contents and to keep the flavour in. They are also used as a protective coating on everything from beds, garden chairs, office and hospital furniture, to supermarket trolleys and bicycles! Most industries use them in protective coating materials. They are used, for example, in special paints to protect the surfaces of ships and oil rigs from bad weather and also in wind turbines!
