Have you ever thought of what constituents go into the construction material? Have you ever wondered how paints and plastics get their desired colors and shapes? Welcome to the world of epoxy resins, the driving force behind different types of industries in the world.

An Epoxy Resin is also popularly known as polyepoxide and is a thermosetting polymer. This is formed as the resultant chemical reaction in which the polyamine hardener combines with an epoxide resin. The process of formation of Epoxy Resin is termed as curing and largely depends upon factors such as the temperature, choice of resin and hardener compound used in its making. Resins can be solids, liquids, diluents, multifunctional and special resins, cycloaliphatic and Bisphenol types. The content below aims to shed light on the diverse industrial applications of these resins.

1. It is the basic constituent of paper colorants, plastic dyes and other specialty chemicals. Its chemical property of resistance towards alkalis and thin film adhesions make them perfect to be used as a paint, coat and dyeing agent.

2. These epoxy resins serves as the basis of number of products like adhesives, fiber-reinforced plastic, dyes, coatings and fiberglass. Its adhesive property is a result of its strong chemical bonds that finds its usage in industries such as the sports, automobile and shipping industries.

3. They are also used as tooling and in composite applications such as master models, molds, casting, fixtures, laminates, and as other industrial alternates. They not only help to replace the old materials but also help in reducing the costs of production.

4. They also have a great demand in the electronics industry where it finds its uses in motors, switchgears, bushings, insulators, and transformers. Their durable nature helps to protect the electrical components from any risks such as short circuits, dust and moisture.

5. These resins are used in the marine industry for components where a great strength and weight ratio is required. They are also used widely in the aircraft industry due to its qualities such as strength, filling of gaps and adhesion to certain materials.
