Thermoset Plastics

 

Epoxy --

Epoxies have several advantages over other plastics including excellent electrical, thermal, and chemical resistance. Their strength can be further increased with fibrous reinforcement or mineral fillers. There is a huge variety of combinations of epoxy resins and reinforcements which allows a wide range of possible properties in the finished molded parts.

Generally, parts molded from epoxy are hard, rigid, relatively brittle, and have excellent dimensional stability over a broad temperature range. The combination of high mechanical strength and excellent electrical properties make them ideal for electrostructural applications.

Uses -

Coatings, casting compounds, encapsulating for electrical components, laminates, and adhesives
