Epoxy resin can react (crosslink) either with themselves via catalytic homopolymerization or with a wide range of co-reactants including multifunctional amines, acids (and anhydride acid), phenols, alcohols, and thiols (commonly called mercaptan).
These reactants are often referred to as solids or hardeners, and the crosslinking reaction is commonly referred to as solidification.
Epoxy refers to one of the basic components or end-treating products of an epoxy resin, as well as the colloquial name for a functional group of epoxy.
Epoxy resin, also known as polyepoxides, is a class of primary and reactive polymers that contains an epoxy group.
Epoxy “5 minute” glue syringe contains separate chambers for epoxy resin and hardener. Epoxy group structure, a reactive functional group found in all epoxy resins.
