The Universal Selection Source: Adhesives Ingredients

Epoxy
Epoxies are created by polymerizing a mixture of two starting compounds, the resin and the hardener. Epoxy adhesives are thermosetting resins which solidify by polymerization and, once set, will soften but not melt on heating. Two-part resin/hardener epoxy systems will solidify on mixing (sometimes accelerated by heat), while one-part epoxy adhesives require heat to initiate the reaction of a latent catalyst. The properties of epoxy adhesives are also varied through the use of fillers. Thanks to their versatility and relatively low cost, they find application in wide range of formulations.
