What Does Epoxy Mean?

Corrosionpedia Explains Epoxy

An epoxy coating is often considered to be superior to the coating and corrosion prevention methods due to its ability to harden and form a durable protective layer around metal. The coating is applied in a liquid form and becomes highly durable afterwards. This characterisic makes it ideal for the production of resins and glues as well.
