Epoxies are used in a number of applications. Their largest applications are found in the construction sector, where thanks to their hardness, strength and durability they are used to coat and protect different materials and surfaces, including piping and flooring. They are also widely used in the energy sector, in particular for the composite structures of windmill blades. Epoxies are also commonly found in the automotive sector to protect vehicle bodies from corrosion as well as in the maritime and aerospace industries. Thanks to their insulating properties, they are increasingly common in electronics. Other applications include sports equipment, as powder coatings in household appliances as well as food and beverage can coatings.

About epoxy resins
Epoxy resins are a highly versatile family of synthetics used as binders for coatings, adhesives, sealants and matrices for composite materials, or fibre reinforced plastics. Those products are in turn used in many applications, such as wind turbines, construction and civil engineering, autos, aerospace, flooring, piping, packaging, electronics, sport and leisure, and household appliances. They can be mixed with a variety of curing agents, opening a world of possibilities to enhance durability, reliability and safety
