Characteristics of epoxy resins.

The chemical structure of epoxy resins is formed by the oligomeric synthetic components, which are produced by the condensation process of polyhydric phenols with epoxy substances. Epoxy resin is never used in its original form: its main properties come into action only in combination with hardeners.

This substance is capable of creating materials with completely different characteristics. Thus, they can be both gum and hard and tough. It depends on the ratio between the resin and the hardener.

Epoxy resin is able to withstand the following agents:

  • acid;
  • alkaline;
  • halogen;
  • thermal;
  • UV rays;
  • water;
  • mechanic;
  • electric, etc.

Epoxy resin has a high level of adhesion to various materials. It adheres firmly to concrete, glass, metal.

The benefits of epoxy resin for self leveling floors.

Epoxy resin is often used due to its characteristics. It hardens quickly and creates a solid, easy-to-maintain and mechanical stress-resistant coating. In addition, epoxy resin can be rubbed down and hence the original appearance of the floor can easily be restored.

Transparent epoxy resin is widely used by designers, as it allows to customize the floor by creating endless amounts of textures and special effects such as the ability to host an image. Unlike other materials, it does not overlap the inserted image, it gives it depth, creating magical 3D effect. These good looking coatings are, however, very durable and remain smooth and shiny for many years giving their owners the feeling of having a new floor as if they were just laid.
