Epoxy Resin (Pure)
Epoxy resins are categorised as compounds with one or more epoxide (or oxirane) groups. Most epoxies can be categorised as glaciated, epoxied oils or cycloaliphatic resins. The most popular epoxy resins are either diglycidyl ethers of bisphenol A, which is created by reacting bisphenol A (BPA) with epichlorohydrin (ECH). the molecular weight is controlled by adjusting the ratio of ECH to BPA; high ratios generate lower molecular weights. Epoxy resin is a polymer with broad applications in the marine, construction, automotive, aerospace and various manufacturing industries.Epoxy resin is categorised into glycidyl or non-glycidyl. Glycidyl epoxies have come glycidyl-ether, glycidyl-ester, and glycidyl-amine subcategories. Non-glycidyl epoxies will either be aliphatic or cyclo-aliphatic. Glycidyl-ether epoxies account for a larger share – especially those of the bisphenol and novolac epoxy types.
