All about epoxy and its uses
You’ve come to the right place to find out more about epoxy. In its liquid form it can be used to coat, laminate and infuse materials like wood and carbon, to provide waterproofing, strength and durability. When it cures, dries or hardens the epoxy becomes resin and as such provides an excellent range of benefits. Sometimes additives are mixed with epoxy, and then it can be used as a glue, as a filler, and for a wide variety of other applications.
Different epoxy resins have been developed over time for specific and specialist uses. Wessex Resins and Adhesives has been developing and manufacturing high-quality epoxy products since 1981. Our resins are trusted for a wide variety of specialist applications such as adhesives that can be mixed, applied and cured underwater.
In addition, Wessex Resins and Adhesives manufacture WEST SYSTEM®, PRO-SET® and ENTROPY RESINS® epoxy under licence from Gougeon Bros Inc. USA. These durable, high-quality epoxies are the adhesives of choice for boat and car manufacturers, chandlers, board sports enthusiasts and DIY aficionados throughout the world.
