EPOXY RESIN RESIN AND DECORATION USAGE AREAS AND APPLICATION
(Picture from Epa Chem.)
I would like to give you some information about epoxy resin which is used widely today in the field of wood decoration. Take a look at what you want to know about the epoxy resin resin by compiling the questions from yours:
The structure is termed synthetic group epoxy resins containing two or more epoxy groups which are prone to react. Epoxy was found in Germany in 1993.
Epoxy resins are obtained by reaction of epichlorohydrin (ECH), commonly known as chloromethyl oxirane, with compounds containing hydroxyl or carboxyl groups with heteroatoms of H to form glycidyl ether or glycidyl ester structures, respectively.
Epoxy resins which are produced according to the -OH functional compound types which are mainly used in epoxyi resin synthesis are:
Diphenylol propane (Bisphenol A (BPA) based epoxy resins,
Epoxy resins based on diphenylol methane (Bisphenol F (BPF)),
Novalak resin based epoxy resin,
Aliphatic polyol based epoxy resins, Cycloaliphatic epoxy resins,
Epoxy functional acrylic resins.
Plastic, metal, glass, wood, etc. of epoxy resins. Strong adhesion to many surfaces has provided many application areas. In addition to this, excellent chemical and mechanical strength, resistance to water and stability against heating have increased the usage areas. It is widely used in paint industry, automotive, marine vehicles and aircraft first and repair paints in general metal industry primer and top coat. It is also widely used in hard and light foam production, adhesive production, sweat coating in construction, pipe production, composite and laminate coatings.
Epoxy; It is a chemical resin which is used in many fields including boat construction and repair, easy to clean, high mechanical strength, which does not lose its resistance over time, which is liquid applied and dried after becoming water, acid and alkaline resistant material.
The name Epoxy comes from the union of the Greek words "Epi" and "Oxy (Sharp / Acid)".
- Easy to clean,
- Resistant to oil and chemicals,
- Solvent free,
- It's odorless,
- Easy and Fast to implement,
Epoxy was first found in Germany in 1939 by I.G.Farben Industrie and was used for the dentistry and medicine sector with its calcium bonding strength. Over time, due to its strength properties and adhesion strength, it has been adapted to the construction sector and to glass reinforced plastic production. Some of these components were added to concrete aggregates as well as some viscosity and density enhancer components were added, and products for strong hygienic and decorative visually appealing floor covering, adhesives, paint and molding industry emerged such as type medicine transportation construction.
Where are epoxy used?
• Gluing of accessories and anchors; Stone, steel, aluminum and even wood.
• Betonarmede; For the purpose of forming anchoring anchors.
• As a thin coating material on concrete, plaster, metal, ceramic, polyester and epoxy surfaces, for structural connection and repair work.
• Installation of prefabricated concrete elements and columns; In repairs of cracks and fractures.
• As surface protective coating.
• Fresh concrete, old hardened concrete or as adhesive resin to bind mortar.
• As anti-abrasion coating surface.
• For production with bridge bearing plates, machine feet, coupling bolts, smooth surface and bearing on railway tracks.
• For the purpose of strengthening the structures in case of increase of loads, damage and aging, structural changes, design and manufacturing mistakes in wood, masonry and reinforced concrete structures.
• As hard, water impermeable and chemical resistant joint filler material in joints of floor and wall ceramic tiles which will be exposed to chemical and mechanical effects; Pool, laundry, hospital, laboratory.
• High strength floor and wall paint.
• Underwater production.
• It can be used for filling or gluing cracks and cavities in buildings for any reason.
The most commonly used epoxy group is the group used as floor covering.
General properties of epoxy surface coating applications can be listed as follows:
• It is resistant against chemicals.
• Wooden furniture decoration industry
• As a protector of the paintings of painters.
• In the construction of decorative items
EPOXY (Industrial Floor Coatings) IS NOT A PAINT;
ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION IS A SYSTEMATIC WORKING SERIES REQUIRING A BUILD. WE ARE TRANSPARENT EPOXY RESIN RESIN USED IN WOOD DECORATION INTERESTING US.
WHY ARE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RESIN COATING AND POLISH?
Since a resin coating is much thicker than the varnish, it acts as an extra protective coating for the art, prints or canvas. The resin will resist heat, water and scratches and will shine very brightly to achieve a translucent effect. Varnishes are also used to protect art, but they are not as durable as thick resin coatings.
Where else can we use EPOXY RESIN?
We can use epoxy resin on most types of decoration materials. You can add any resin coating to the original oil paintings and acrylic paint tables, posters, photos and plate bonds! This coating is versatile and can be used in many directions. When the epoxy is dry, the coated work will be hard and strong, so all photos, images and artistic values will not be lost.
EPOXY REASONS WHAT ARE YOUR ADVANTAGES?
Epoxy resin will protect the canvas seal and moisture, heat and physical contact for a long period of time by giving it hardness and rigidity. Epoxy canvas gathers a brilliant color that provides a glassy look. This can increase the colors in the image in particular.
WHAT DOES EPOXY HAVE THE RESURRECTIONS OF RESIN?
Epoxy resin coated materials can become yellow when exposed to extreme sunlight. At the same time, if you do not destroy the air bubbles, you can get blurred color if you do not mix the resin with the hardener thoroughly. 1 cm thick does not spill. You will not have a chance to intervene with that oil painting again once the oil paintings are finished like transparent. Care must be taken in the museum's registered works. Do not resuspend epoxy resin resins in your body. Use gloves with your hands. Do not smell. You can cause serious damage to your body. The exposure to Epoxy during a poisoning should be taken to the hospital unexpectedly. It should be kept away from children. It should be stored in a secure locked location.
HOW TO CLEAN THE APPLIED MATERIAL WITH EPOXY RESIN RESIN?
You can clean it with a damp cloth.
HOW CAN WE USABLE IN THE DECORATION BY EPOXY RESIN RESONANCE, WHAT USAGE RATINGS?
We can easily use epoxy resin resin in every object in decoration. We can make a table by chopping slices of wood and applying Epoxy in molds. We can use table chairs by applying thin layer layer and applying them to a painter's canvas.
Transparent epoxy resin resins are generally sold in the market with 4 + 1 components. I was offered hardening stones by the side. It is sold as a team. Hardener ratio varies from mark to mark. Some use 2 parts resin + 1 part hardener (ie 50 gr hardener + 100 g epoxy resin account) at a ratio of 3/2 (100 gr hardener + 200 gr epoxy resin).
PREPARATION OF EPOXY RESIN:
It is usually weighed with a precision scale. It is prepared in 25 degree room heat. Always pay attention to the heat of the room. In cold weather, mix the jar slowly by placing it in hot water. Extremely hot water usage causes the epoxy resin to react early. It can also be measured in precision glazing cups. You will not get a clean transparent image if you have spent the hardener ratio. The image is blurred. You can not emphasize the hardening rate by adding too much hardener. On the contrary, due to the chemical reaction, it may crack due to high heat release. First weigh the glass gouache by carefully observing the hardener and then add epoxy resin. After discussing it in size, it is mixed very slowly with a clean wooden stick. Rapid stirring improves the chemical reaction in the resin, early disruption. The most important thing to note when mixing with a rod is that you must bring the resin into the jar with hardener at every point. Unmixed resin should not remain. Otherwise, these uncompounded resins will form air bubbles during use. You will also use it as a result of mixing the spatula yada brush will become unusable one more time. Because there is no product to clean epoxy resin.
EPOXY RESIN USE:
Epoxy resin is a chemical compound that provides a decorative image that is used widely and protects the material against external physical factors. There are various colors available. Be careful to be transparent in portraits, otherwise colors can get mixed up.
As I have mentioned, it is the areas of use in decoration that interests us. This use will generally not be used in wood decorations. Yes, it is used as a decorative decoration in wooden decorations. For example, you can cut a tree horizontally, lay a colorful phosphorus between them, put decorative stone, dried flowers and spread epoxy resin resin layer on top to get a nice elegant dining table Yada coffee table. In this spreading process, the thickness should not exceed 1 cm. And the gas bubbles are destroyed by the pneumatic tool and held back by the hot wobble machine. Drying times range from 8-10 hours and the reaction will begin to penetrate within half an hour. You will use it in making wooden table on the table, use plastic mold in thickness.
Or you can get decorative wooden furniture using epoxy when you make the living room groups.
On the other hand, the most beautiful feature of epoxy resin is that it allows to sandpaper with paper or machine. Do not worry that the color that is drawn on the sandpaper is foggy, and when you apply it with your hand on the elastic gloves in your hands, you will get a glass-like transparent look again.
I have a lot of information about epoxy resin resin from A to Z today. Stay patient to meet on a regular basis.
