Epoxy Resins! Why should we sell this?
What and How? An exceptionally tough adhesive or bedding material that is activated by mixing two component resins together, just prior to use. The resins combine in a chemical reaction to form a new compound that sets very hard and provides an incredibly strong and durable adhesive bond to the surface.
Purpose… ADHESIVE (Fix little things around the house, car and other everyday problems) Other Uses: Adhesives Electrical Parts Coating Applications Laminates Molds/Dies/Tools Bonding Tooling Electrical/Electronic Applications Automotive Applications
Pros… Low viscosity High strength Good chemical resistance Good thermal shock resistance Good corrosion resistance Good impact resistance Good heat resistance
Concerns… Irritating to the skin Strong sensitizers (allergies and breathing problems) May cause cancer (in extreme cases) When decomposing, toxic vapours
