The Epoxy Resin - History and Perspectives


Abstract:
Since its discovery, more than eight decades ago, the epoxy resin grew quickly to be largely used in all-day activities around the world. This paper presents the evolution of utilization of the epoxy resin around the world, since its discovery until our times. Also, being such a familiar material in all industries, an analyses of its impact on the economy is also addressed in the second part of this study, revealing its importance on the economy of the countries on the both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The research involving the utilization of the epoxy resin is still underway at this time, an interesting path being taken in Romania at the Research and Development Center for Thermoset Matrix Composites that is part of the “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galati. Some of the ideas, already partially put in practice are presented in the last part of this article, the utilization of this resin as part of a composite being the main focus of obtaining some materials needed in green-energy production.
