Types of epoxy resins
Glycidyl ester resins: for electrical insulation, vacuum impregnation, laminations, for casting and high weatherability parts.
Glycidylamine resins: for parts which must retain their mechanical properties at high temperatures, resistant to nuclear radiation, wet lamination.
Brominated resins: for fire resistant parts.
Excellent mechanical properties.
Strong adhesion to almost all materials.
Low shrinkage on cure (1-2%) Thermostability.
High chemical resistance.
Good electrical properties.
Reduced water absorption.
At high temperature it shows a decrease of mechanical properties.
From 300 °C it begins to burn.
Mortar and polymer concrete.
Manufacture of tools and moulds.
Fiber reinforced plastics: wind blades, boats, vehicle bodies, etc.
Casting resins for the electrical sector.
