Exposing epoxy and almost everything what is connected with epoxy resins, epoxy paint and epoxy floor coatings shall be my pleasure.
This site is being developed all the time so I am inviting you to visit it regularly. I am sure you will find more information about epoxies and epoxy flooring each time you visit it.Enjoy the site. I hope you will find it useful.
Let's start from the beginning.In standard spoken English we use the term epoxy but there are also other words that are rarely in use like: epoxies and epoxide. The most common spelling errors that people make typing search key words are as follows: ' epoxi ' instead of epoxy or ' epoxie ' instead of epoxies
Now what is epoxy - epoxies ?
Epoxies are polymer materials that begin life as liquids and are converted to the solid polymers by a chemical reaction. An epoxy based polymer is mechanically strong, chemically resistant to degradation of the chemical elements in the solid form and highly adhesive during conversion from liquid to solid. There are a wide range of basic epoxy chemicals from which an epoxy system can be formulated.
Physically epoxy systems contain two components, resins and a hardeners. The resin component is usually light, sometimes almost clear colored and almost odour free. Hardeners are usually dark and have a characteristic 'ammonia-like' smell. When these two components are brought together and mixed intimately in a prescribed way, they will react chemically and link together irreversibly, and after the chemical reaction has been completed, they will form a rigid plastic material.
Applications of epoxy based materials are extensive and include coatings, adhesives and composite materials like carbon fiber and glass-reinforced plastic (although polyester, vinyl ester, and other thermosetting resins are also used for glass-reinforced plastic). Epoxies are known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance, good to excellent mechanical properties and very good electrical insulating properties. Almost any property can be modified.
