Resin is the mixture of various complex and lipid-soluble compounds which is actually made up of the chemical elements such as triterpenoid and as well as diterpenoid. Epoxy is an adhesive material of an artificial substance. Let us know How to use Resin in the upcoming paragraph


The characteristics of the resin are

As it has much brittleness it is nonbreakable

How to use Resin

As it is made up of organic material it’s not much harmful to human beings

It is non-toxic.

Epoxy resin will not get a bond to the chemicals the materials like polyethylene, Teflon, polypropylene, Nylon, Mylor. These epoxy resin will get poorly bond with the chemicals like polyvinyl chloride, polycarbonate plastics and the material like acrylic. It is most friendly for our environmental resource as it’s coming from an organic plant source. This epoxy resin consists of rings that are one oxygen and two carbon atoms which are getting attaches with large groups of aliphatic or even in the use of aromatic components. Epoxy is the production form by joining the reaction such as bisphenol –A and the other compound is epichlorohydrin. These epoxy resin can also be replaced by some more chemicals like o-cresol, glycols which are in the form of aliphatic materials and phenol.

Resin types

This epoxy resin is of two types namely

Casting resins

Synthetic resins

These casting resins are used in small scale industries temporarily. The peculiar example for casting resin is a polyester resin which takes only eight-ten minutes to cure off. It then is shortly known as the plastic casting in which the plastic is fully filled with another type of synthetic resin as it leads a plastic to become harder.

The synthetic resin is very hard to prepare in a home as so it is prepared in industries. It is not so easy like the process of casting resin to prepare in home with the curing method the viscous material is converted into the rigid process. The adaptable example of this type of resin is plastic which is too harmful to the earth and as well as human beings. As it is non-bio-degradable it cannot be decomposed earlier, it takes a lot and a lot of time to decompose. Before it gets decomposing it destroys the land and as well as growing plants.

Merits and demerits

The important advantage is that,

They have electrical properties in a good manner

While curing they have low shrinkage power

They have a maximum moisture content

As well as there will be a disadvantage for this epoxy resin

In the curing process, they are possibly brittle in nature and so they don’t get tougher.

Usage method

Epoxy resin can be used mainly in wood and in plastic items for example mainly to store liquid items. The first step for our safety purpose we should mainly use gloves and mosques wearings.

We have to mix the epoxy resin in the correct accordance ratio manner. To mix properly without any bubble particle inside the resin mixture we can use a stick /toothed stick. The next step is the colouring method, the epoxy resin can be coloured if needed and mix it again. After mixing apply the epoxy resin in the material and plate it correctly. Then remove the bubbles which are plated in the particle by the use of sharp particles for example ball pins. At last, we can remove the resin after curing and we can use the material.
