What is Epoxy Resin?
Epoxy is the family of basic components or cured end products of epoxy resins. Epoxy resins, also known as polyepoxides, are a class of reactive prepolymers and polymers which contain epoxide groups.
The epoxide functional group is also collectively called epoxy. The IUPAC name for an epoxide group is oxirane.

What area will 1kg of resin cover?
You will require 1 kg of resin per millimetre of thickness required over a 1 sqm area. Therefore, to calculate how much resin to mix, simply multiply the thickness you require (in millimetres) by the area of your surface (in square metres).
Is epoxy resin expensive?
A: Epoxy resins are expensive because they are hard to produce as compared to other types of resins.
The reason behind this is the raw material needed to produce epoxy costs a lot more than other resins and the process itself is more complicated.
Does epoxy resin fade?
When the epoxy coating is exposed to UV light, either directly or indirectly, it causes noticeable and permanent damage as a result of photodegradation, including loss of gloss, ambering (i.e. a yellow discolouration), and for the coloured one chalking and breakdown of the coating may also result.
What is the weakness of epoxy resin?
The main limitation of epoxy resins with a curing agent using the aliphatic amine is that it cannot form a cross-link network system at glass temperature (T g) above 120°C. For anticipating this weakness, an aromatic amine curing agent is used.
