Epoxy Adhesive

Is Epoxy Adhesive Safe?

Well, when figuring out what adhesives are safe for use, you have to ask, how is this made? What processes go into the bond of this adhesive, and will it be safe for me. The raw materials for epoxy adhesive production are today largely petroleum derived, although some plant derived sources are now becoming commercially available. The epoxy adhesive is created when you compound a resin and a hardener. When the resin is mixed, the products start curing, or chemically reacting, and they release heat. The covalent bonds that are produced are the factors that contribute to the rigidity and strength of the epoxy.

 

Why use Epoxy Adhesive?

The epoxy adhesives are known for their formidable strength, which makes for versatile products in many different industries. The epoxy offers resistance to heat and chemical applications, making it an ideal product for anyone needing a strong hold under pressure. It has excellent adhesion and water resistance as well as mechanical and electrical insulating properties. Typically, epoxy adhesives are used for large scale structural and engineering projects, but because the adhesive can become flexible or rigid, and vary in the opaque and transparent options, this results in diverse uses.
