Epoxy Resin-The one industrial chemical with multiple applications

Industrial construction involves an extensive use of different kinds of chemicals. Use of paints, adhesives, reducers and other chemicals is integral for the proper development of vessels, equipment, machinery, fixtures. All this chemicals are also used in many other industries.

The quality of the chemicals that go into the making of all industrial entities directly impacts the durability, longevity and appeal of the final product.
To understand the properties, effects and application of each industrial element is a long and tedious task, but it’s just as necessary for the betterment of the components that you use in your trade.

There are elements that have multiple applications, and a comprehensive understanding of them can prove to be of excellent assistance when it comes to choosing the right type of product and getting it from the right source.

Epoxy resin has many applications in industrial construction. The adhesive properties that it possesses are very strong and impressive; in addition to that, it is chemically resistant and battle-tested in terms of durability, and endurance.
It is a two part system that includes the main element and a catalyst, in addition to which diluents and other additives may be used.

While individually, a single component of the system is not readily usable and is in fact, irritable, when amalgamated properly, the final product which is a result of all the above mentioned chemicals, is a hard usable, non-sensitizing non-irritable and.

Applications of this system:
  • Surface coating:- It is used to provide a resilient and firm coat to products and goods. In the case of cars, it may be used as a primer. Because sea vessels are prone to more wear and tear, it can be used in place of the actual paint. Also, steel pipes, and other steel products can be coated with it.
  • PVC production:- Eyeglass frames, handbags, artificial necklaces, and other products that contain PVC or even plastic or vinyl use it too.
  • As an electrical insulator:- It can also be used for electrical equipments for being a bad conductor of electricity. For this it may be used in capacitors, electrical components, transformers, circuit boards and other electrical components.
  • Glues and adhesives:- Due to its strong bonding properties, it can be used by anyone from sculptors, artists, and people who have a hobby of model train building, ship building to anyone who need it for its strong industrial applications, like for flooring, roads, bridges, concrete, cars, ships aircrafts and more. It is also used as a dental bonding agent by dentists.
Now that you have some idea about the various applications of this system, it will help you to understand if you can benefit from it, on a practical level.
