Epoxy resin is a class of thermosetting polymers made from monomers that contain at least two epoxide groups. They provide strong adhesion, chemical resistance and other specialized properties. Due to these qualities, epoxy resins are used in a variety of consumer and industrial products. These resins are used in building and construction applications can help increase the lifespan of buildings by improving the durability of the structural parts, engineering adhesives, and paints.
Orson’s epoxy resins provide a protective layer that separates food and drinks from the metal used to make their cans. The epoxy resin coatings also help to minimize the corrosion of the metal, which could compromise the safety of the food or drink. Epoxies are used in a range of consumer and industrial applications, due to their durability, strong adhesion, chemical resistance and other specialized properties.
Renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, natural gas and new battery technologies, depend on epoxy technology innovations to help them become more efficient, affordable and scalable. Epoxy resins used in building and construction applications can help increase the lifespan of buildings and decrease the need for refurbishing and repainting, by improving the durability of structural parts, engineering adhesives and paints.
Epoxies are used in high-performance and decorative flooring, such as terrazzo, chip and colored aggregate flooring are also some application of epoxies. and can improve the aesthetic appeal of materials like marble. Epoxy flooring can also be augmented by adding contrasting vinyl chips to the top epoxy layer, or other additives like adding grit to give floors an anti-skid texture.
Glass packaging, such as those used in canning food, also typically rely on epoxies to protect metal lids from corrosion. Be sure to contact Orson Resins and coatings today for more information on Resins for FRP Tanks.
