Epoxy resins can come either as low-molecular honey-like liquids or as high-molecular substances. At room temperature they appear in a solid state, assuming a sugar-like aspect, following a process of crystallisation. Following an increase in temperature or when heat is applied, solid epoxy resins would reverse to their liquid state. Cured epoxies are often colourless or transparent; pigments can be used to change their appearance.

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
