What are epoxies, and what are they used for?
Epoxies are added to concrete to enhance the properties of the concrete or to correct problems in the concrete mixture. When added to concrete, epoxies provide high compressive and tensile strength, superior chemical resistance, and good wear resistance. When added to concrete mixture, the cost of the mixture is increased and will require longer curing times.
Epoxies have been used for various purposes such as boding concrete, filling cracks, and anchoring bolts. Epoxies are thermosetting resins that cure by adding a hardener or catalyst.
