Epoxy resins are a class of prepolymers and polymers containing more than one epoxide group. Through a chemical reaction called curing, epoxy resins are processed with other chemicals to produce epoxy plastics (more commonly known as epoxies). The vast majority of epoxy resins are industrially produced petroleum derivatives. Today, hundreds of resins are available, the most common produced with epichlorohydrin and Bisphenol A.

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
