Definition - What does Epoxy Glass mean?
Epoxy glass is a transparent, hard and brittle substance that is derived from the polymerization of epoxides. It is used as a type of coating on metal surfaces to prevent corrosion.
Industrial epoxy glass is made up of a combination of polymerized resin material and fiberglass cloth. It is thermo-laminated and flame resistant. These primary properties of epoxy resin glass make it ideal for high temperature, electrical and mechanical applications.
Corrosionpedia explains Epoxy Glass
Epoxy glass easily retains the original shape in which it is molded, allowing it to perfectly adhere to a wide range of metal surface geometries.
The following properties of epoxy glass make it ideal as a corrosion preventative coating:
- Low moisture absorption
- Low chemical reactivity
- High tensile strength
- Radiation resistance
