Cured epoxy resins have a number of different properties. They are a very stable and durable material, suitable to build machines and structures with a long lifespan. Epoxies have also good mechanical properties, making them a hard material whilst retaining some intrinsic flexibility at the same time. Epoxies are also adhesives materials which can be used in many ways. Finally, both resins and hardeners can be stored for a long time if they are not mixed, which is why epoxies are also specified in do-it-yourself packages for experienced, safety-conscious users.

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
