Which ResinPro epoxy resin to choose?
Resinpro products are designed with ordinary users in mind. For this purpose, a very wide range of different ResinPro epoxy resins has also been created to ensure that customers have freedom of choice and find the right epoxy resin for their work or to do.
In our online store, the product range of epoxy resins is divided into 8 main groups
- A layer up to 1cm thick for painting and coating(this should then be a link to the groups of the given product)
In this group of products, epoxy resins are suitable for covering floors, kitchen countertops, tables and other artworks to protect surfaces, give gloss and depth. You will also find epoxy resins specially designed for painting, which are thicker in consistency and do not allow paints to mix with each other.
- Universal castings up to 2 cm thick(it should then be a link to the groups of a given product)
In this group of products you will find the most universal products with which you can experiment with almost all the activities that belong to the hobby of epoxy resin. If the creation is already in your paw, you can also want a more specific product. The best products to start and test.
- Casting up to 5 cm thick(it should then be a link to the groups of a given product)
In this group of products there are epoxy resins, which are intended mainly for making river boards (rivertable). But the products are suitable for pouring any thicker layer, since the drying period of the product is brought longer, and this ensures calm and low-temperature drying.
- Up to 10cm thick casting(it should then be a link to the groups of a given product)
Here you can find a suitable product for making especially massive and large dining tables. Also, the product is suitable for drowning various items. Very good product for large projects.
- Polyurethane resins(this should then be a link to the groups of a given product)
Here you can find resins with a different chemical compound, which are also designed to make and cover 3D models.
- BIO, ECO and Food resistant epoxy resins (this should then be a link to the given product groups)
These products are designed with those customers who attach importance to safety and responsible production.
- UV hardening resins and extras(this should then be a link to the groups of the given product)
UV petrifying products are unicellular resins that react to UV light. The product hardens when UV light shines on the product. These products dry very quickly and are easy to use
- Glass fiber and Carbon(Carbon fiber) products(this should then be a link to the given product groups)
Epoxy resin specially designed for coating and fixing glass fabrics and carbon fibers.
Epoxy resin – what substance is it and where can we find it?
- Epoxy is a common colloquial name that refers to any component or cured end product of epoxy resin.
- Epoxy resin is a two-component liquid polymer that is thermo-curing.
- Simply put, epoxy resin is a liquid consisting of hardener and resin, which solidifies when the hardener and resin mix, thanks to the reaction of catalysis.
Epoxy resins have been in use for more than 50 years and are among the most successful plastic families. Their physical state can be transformed from a low viscosity liquid into a solid with a high melting point, which means that a wide range of materials with unique properties can be made.
At home, you can find them in cans of soft drinks and in special packages, where they are used as lining to protect the contents and keep the taste. They are also used as a protective coating everywhere. Such as:
- office and hospital furniture,
- supermarket carts,
They are also used in special paints to protect the surfaces of ships, oil drilling rigs and wind turbines from bad weather.
Properties of epoxy resin.
The physical state of epoxy resins can vary from a low viscosity liquid to a solid with a high melting point. They can be cross-linked using a variety of hardeners, forming materials with a unique combination of properties that bring advantages in key industrial sectors.
Epoxides are known for their excellent
- chemical and heat resistance,
- outstanding mechanical properties,
- very good electrical insulating properties.
Many of their properties can be changed, for example, silver-filled epoxides with good electrical conductivity are available, while epoxys are usually electrically insulating. Variations are available that provide high thermal insulation or thermal conductivity in combination with high electrical resistance for electronic devices.
Description of the process of drying epoxy resin
Epoxy resins are thermosetting polymers with unique mechanical and durable properties. They arise from a chemical reaction called "hardening," which involves epoxides and other chemicals more commonly known as hardeners.
A number of substances can be used as hardeners, including:
- aminoamides, or
- phenolic compounds.
The hardening process consists of an exothermic reaction, which is achieved either by the reaction of epoxy resins with themselves (catalytic homopolymerization) or by crosslinking with a hardener. As a result of the hardening process, thermosetting polymers of epoxy are created, which have a unique effect:
Depending on the desired result, different types of epoxy resins can be mixed. It is also possible to mix additives, plasticizers or fillers to modulate the final characteristics of specific uses.
Epoxy resin and areas of their application
The areas of application of epoxy resins are extensive, and their application can be found in the following places:
- Paints and coatings.
- Composite materials, such as carbon fiber and fiberglass reinforcements.
- Industrial tools and composites.
- Electrical systems and electronics.
- Consumer applications.
- Marine applications.
- Aerospace applications.
- Furniture industry.
