EPOXY RESINS

The company’s epoxy resins offer includes a wide range of EPIDIAN® products, including:

  • floor resins and hardeners
  • composite resins and hardeners
  • innovative solutions for pultrusion
  • solid epoxy resins for powder paints and liquid anti-corrosion paints
  • resins for semi-finished products

Epoxy resins are low-molecular, oligomeric and polymeric epoxy compounds containing at least two epoxy groups in the structure, as well as cured products of these compounds. They are mainly produced in the synthesis of epichlorohydrin with bisphenol A or bisphenol F. Depending on the molar ratios of the substrates and condensation parameters, different types of these resins are made with various molecule sizes and numbers of epoxy and hydroxyl groups.

In uncured form, epoxy resins are viscous liquids or thermoplastic solids. Curing, or spatial cross-linking, is achieved by chemical reactions of the resin functional groups with an appropriate hardener. The cured material properties can be modified by the choice of the hardener.
