What Is Epoxy Resin?

Epoxy Resin is a specially used chemical widely involved in the manufacturing of different products including adhesives, plastics, paints, coatings, sealers, and primers. It is also used in manufacturing other materials used in the construction and building industry. Epoxy Resin is a polyether made from many monomer units.

 

Liquid Epoxy Resin

Uses of Epoxy Resin:

Epoxy Resin is the result of the reaction between epichlorohydrin (ECH) and bisphenol-A (BPA). It is available in solid and liquid states.

  • Industrial and automotive manufacturers use Epoxy coatings because of their heat resistant nature.
  • Used as high-performance adhesive in construction of aircraft, automobiles, and other high-end goods.
  • Used in the industrial application of tools like producing different kinds of molds, laminates, and other production material that is required by industries.
  • Used as a bonding matrix with carbon fiber fabric and glass, producing high-quality rotor blades.
  • Used in electrical appliances as an insulator to prevent short circuits and moisture.

Is Epoxy Resin Safe?

Consuming Epoxy Resin is unsafe because of the hazardous chemical composition. According to Epoxy Resin MSDS, it is not safe for living beings physical or oral consumption. The liquid state of Epoxy causes irritation in breathing, eyes, and skin. It may cause skin sensitization and occupational asthma due to its sharp irritative smell. Low molecular weight diluents have been declared riskier to use. So proper storage and disposal of Epoxy Resin need to be taken into consideration to avoid any unwanted effects like skin irritation, breathing problem or any other effect.

How Is Epoxy Resin Made?

In factories, Epoxy Resin is made by a reaction between epichlorohydrin (ECH) and bisphenol-A (BPA). They combine to make a basic monomer molecule that is called BADGE or DGEBA. The further properties are curated by a process called hardening or curing. Epoxy Resin exist in both solid and liquid form.

Where To Buy Epoxy Resin In Bulk?

You may be able to find Epoxy Resin in small quantities in your area. But if you want to buy large quantities of Epoxy Resin, it is preferable to import directly from the manufacturers. They can issue certifications and provide cost savings which is better than buying the chemical in small quantities locally or from a distributor. If you require bulk quantities of this chemical, you can buy Epoxy Resin on our website.
