Despite the benefits of epoxy resins, it is an unavoidable fact that epoxy is not easy to work with — mostly because many epoxies cure at elevated temperatures. Understanding the characteristics of epoxy and how it cures can help users, says the engineering team at Powerblanket in Salt Lake City.
Epoxy is made of a chemical reaction between epoxide resins and hardening agents. These resins react in a way that creates a strong adhesive bond — a sort of super glue in a sense. In turn, this epoxy adhesive can be applied to many products and materials, including cars, boats, countertops and flooring.
