What is Epoxy resin?
Epoxy resin is a type of adhesive that has a very high resistance and is a two-component resin that begins to harden when combined with a dryer or its chemical activator. Epoxy resin consists of a large family of materials and although its life span is less than 70 years since its invention, but it has found many applications in various industries. Epoxy is also known as epoxy due to its chemical formulation and differences in different dialects and languages.
This material is a type of resistant resin. One of these applications of epoxy resin is making epoxy paint, which is even used as a floor covering in workshops and factories.
The strength of epoxy resin is such that its combination with carbon and aramid fibers is used to make rocket engines and pressure cylinders using screw threads, helicopter propellers, large boats and self-propelled warheads. The most obvious advantage of this type of resin is its lightness and high strength, which are compared to metals in some materials due to these advantages.
