Epoxy coatings are used on concrete and steel surfaces to create a resistant barrier against the damaging effects of water, acidic and alkaline substances, chemicals, and solvents. Fire, heat, and abrasion resistance are also key considerations when selecting an industrial coating. Most fusion bonded epoxy coatings consist of two distinct components, which are mixed prior to application:
The various resins, co-reactants, and hardening agents used in epoxy coatings display a wide range of features and are chosen based on the finished product's performance demands. Fusion bonded epoxy coating formulations are selected through careful evaluation of the materials being coated and the environmental conditions they will face during use.
When selecting an epoxy coating, the following material and environmental factors must be carefully analyzed:
