What is Epoxy Resin?


Epoxy/resin is a highly versatile and durable material that can be used to create decorative pieces, coatings, and more. It is made up of two components: the epoxide (resin) and the hardener. When combined, they create a strong three-dimensional molecular structure that dries quickly and increases in strength as it cures.


Epoxy/resin has a wide range of applications including art projects, flooring, countertops, furniture making, jewelry making, coating wood surfaces for protection or decoration, boat building repairs, and much more. Its superior adhesion qualities make it ideal for areas prone to moisture or harsh environments such as swimming pools or outdoor furniture.


Benefits of Using Epoxy Resin


The benefits of using epoxy/resin are numerous. It is easy to use, non-toxic when cured and cures quickly. Epoxy/resin has superior adhesion qualities, making it perfect for sealing wood surfaces or protecting items from moisture or harsh environments. It is also often used as an alternative floor coating on concrete or cement in construction projects.


In addition to its durability and waterproof qualities, epoxy/resin has a glossy finish that adds shine and brilliance to any project. It can also be used with dyes and colors to create unique designs and patterns that can’t be achieved with other materials.
