Epoxy Binding Resins

Epoxy resins are a highly adaptable group of oligomers and polymers which undergo thermosetting — or curing — when a hardening agent (commonly referred to as an epoxy hardener) is added to the epoxy to develop desired properties. The chemistry of epoxies can be manipulated to produce a myriad of molecular weights, viscosities, and other characteristics. This flexibility makes them suitable for a wide range of end-user applications, from binding countertops and coating floors to molding aircraft components and manufacturing wind-powered turbine blades. Epoxies are a unique chemistry that can be used in a variety of adhesives, coatings, inks, and composite applications.
