Island Epoxseal: What You Need to Know

Posted on September 18, 2017

Before you can apply paint on a surface, you need to make sure that it’s clean, leveled and conditioned for the paint to adhere to. Cracks and dents will definitely show if left untreated before coating. And for such surface imperfections—especially industrial surfaces—epoxies can be of great help. Here’s a short guide and graphic for what you need to know.

What is Epoxy Resin

Epoxy resin is a type of resin that carries tough mechanical properties, good chemical resistance and high adhesive strength, making it useful for applications on:

  • Metal coatings
  • Electrical components
  • Electrical insulators
  • Fibre-reinforced plastic materials
  • Structural adhesives

Epoxy resins may also be used in caulking and casting compounds, sealants, varnishes and paints, and other industrial applications.

Epoxy Resin vs. Other Resins

Epoxy stands superior to other types of resins such as thermoset, due to its natural properties such as:

  • Low shrink during cure
  • Excellent moisture
  • Outstanding corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Good electrical properties
  • Increased mechanical and fatigue strength
  • Impact resistant
  • No VOCs
  • Long shelf life
