Epoxy resins


Liquids that can be poured and cured at room temperatures. The cured material is tough, solid, durable and unaffected by oils and seawater. It may be used as a chocking material for engines, for adhesives or as a surface coating e.g. paint, because of its good adhesion property.

High-build epoxy  – An epoxy resin with additives in order to improve its strength and resistance to abrasion (e.g. calcium carbonate, metal fibers and powders, and glass fibers).
