Resin is a versatile substance that can be used for a multitude of purposes. Commonly used to make durable castings, crafts, floors, countertops, and more. Resin can be used to make plastics, and is an excellent adhesive. Epoxy resins, also called polyepoxides, are a type of reactive prepolymers and polymers that contain epoxy groups.
They have excellent chemical and thermal resistance and strong adhesion properties. They are used for laminates, adhesives, floors, coatings, propellers and surface coatings. The main use of resin is to be a glue, to transfer tension between the fibers, to bind them together and protect them from external factors. The first resins found in nature, in plants, insects or trees, amber or shellac are some of the examples of natural resins.
These natural resins are used in some products, but are generally flammable and fusible, they may appear to be soluble in liquids, making them unsuitable for some applications. This resin is used to make fillers, construction materials, fishing rods, accessories and even surface coatings. Acrylic resins are unique because they are made up of acrylic acids that give them some interesting characteristics. Like most thermoplastics, this resin has good shape retention, but unlike most thermoplastics, it is immune to the effects of UV exposure and also has a fairly strong tensile strength.
As a result, acrylic resin is used to create adhesives, surface coatings, elastics and even decoration. Being an important part of the electronics industry, epoxy resin is used in the production of insulators, motors, transformers and generators. Because epoxy resins are fantastic insulators and offer protection against dust, moisture and short circuits, it remains one of the main resins used in circuit creation as well.
