What Are Epoxy Resin and Hardeners.
Epoxy Resins are well-balanced industrial materials, used for a wide variety of applications. Epoxy resins are one-part or two-part industrial materials that have respective advantages and can be exploited in a wide variety of industries offering excellent mechanical strength, heat resistance, and chemical resistance.
Some of the benefits of Epoxy Resins
One part Epoxy Resin.
One part Epoxy resin is cured by application of heat, hence the curing agent in this type of resin is just heat, it has various advantages, one is that it is one part and hence can easily be managed, low probability of damaging our skin, and sure does have exellent heat resistance. some of the disadvantages of one part epoxy resin is that it must need heat for curing, if the film applied is thick then it will be difficult to cure, there is also the probability of being in uncured state when used in minute resistance.
We are always making efforts to offer products that will best suit your design requirements.
Two-Part Epoxy Resin.
Epoxy resin and hardener are known as two part epoxy resin, there is the reason and the other part the hardner in Epoxy Oilserv we call it the catalyst, curing is started by mixing the main agent with the curing agent (catalyst)
Curing of two-part epoxy resins
Characteristics of two-part epoxy resins
The characteristic of two-part epoxy resin is that it cures at room temperature without heating, this appears to be one of the biggest advantage, it also have excellent chemical resistance and diaelectricity. some of the disadvantage of the two-part epoxy resin is that it is burdensome measuring and blending two agents, there is probability of skin irritation due to the hardener and it finally it has a short working time, hence during application one has to be very careful
Points for selecting two-part epoxy resins
|Base agent||Consider color and viscosity.|
|Hardener||Curing time/temperature, strength, flexibility, etc.|
