What Is an Epoxy Resin?

Epoxy resins are durable, versatile bonding adhesives preferred for many construction and industrial applications. Their chemical composition can be altered to provide a range of viscosities, weights, and other characteristics, allowing them to be used in many different environments.

Part of epoxy resin’s versatility comes from its properties. These adhesives offer excellent mechanical and fatigue strength along with resistance to moisture, chemicals, and impact, letting them last for a long time with minimal maintenance. They also bond to many materials, including metals and plastics, and shrink little during the curing process.

In industrial and commercial settings, epoxy resins are especially valuable for coating high-wear components for protection, or for repairing faults in critical structural foundations. Some components that are often coated or repaired with epoxy resins include:

  • Pipes
  • Housings and casings
  • Electrical panels
  • Sensors
  • Fans
  • Breakers
  • Chutes
  • Pulverizers

Our High-Temperature Epoxies for Metal & Nonmetal Surfaces

Epoxy resins are well known for their resistance to corrosion, but some are also suited to the high temperatures used in certain industrial environments. We offer several epoxy resins that are specifically designed to withstand the heat required by these production environments.

High-Temperature Ceramic Wear Compound K-037

Designed to withstand abrasion and corrosion in the most severe service conditions, these two-component, ceramic bead-filled epoxy systems are suitable for working environments up to 450° F. In addition to offering temperature and chemical resistance, these adhesives are also known for their impressive slide and impact resistance. They are also non-sagging, meaning they can be applied to vertical or overhead surfaces without issue. Common applications for these compounds are repairing and protecting processing equipment, including high-wear components like:

  • Pump casings
  • Slurry lines
  • Pipe elbows
  • Cyclones and fans

REDBAC XTra Temp High Performance Grout K-052

Like the K-037 ceramic systems, our REDBAC XTra Temp High Performance Grout offers superior strength and chemical resistance to corrosive compounds. Ideally suited to highly corrosive plants and similar environments, this grout maintains its benefits at service temperatures reaching 400° F. The solids resin system is specially designed for applications like:

  • Grouting machine bases
  • Setting, anchor bolts, leveling wedges, and other crucial components
  • Repairing damaged or deteriorated foundations
  • Protecting vulnerable concrete surfaces

Additional Products

High-temperature environments are especially common in certain sectors such as composite manufacturing and OEM. Our line of active products and custom-designed solutions are specially formulated to meet the needs of processes like infusion, filament winding, and pultrusion. Regardless of industry, we will work with you to identify the right materials and processes to reduce costs and improve results.
