Construction Systems Supply Corporation (CSS Corp.), a leading supplier of high quality epoxy resins for industrial and commercial use, says the latest figures from MarketsandMarkets (M&M) fall right in line with the recent increase in demand the company has seen for their products and services.
“Epoxy resins currently have a wide range of uses, and as future research continues to improve the ability for epoxies to be utilized by other industries, it’s no surprise that demand is expected to grow.” said Ron Riva, CEO of Construction Systems Supply Corporation. “In the industrial and commercial fields alone, epoxies are routinely used for things such as floor coatings, concrete repair, and protecting industrial equipment from corrosion. Epoxy resins can be easily applied to a variety of concrete and metal surfaces.”
Per the M&M report, epoxies are also largely used in the paints and coatings industries, and the construction, composites and adhesives, electrical, wind turbine, and electronics industries.
Even with the projected integration of epoxies into new markets, the M&M report does identify one major stumbling block that could hinder the ability of some epoxies to truly thrive: health hazards associated with the product’s use. Many industrial strength epoxies contain solvents and chemicals that produce hazardous vapors and often require the end-user to undergo hazmat training prior to using the product. However, with consumers becoming increasingly environmentally aware, today’s market has shifted in favor of those companies offering “green” or eco-friendly products. To meet the demand of today’s environmentally conscious consumer, industrial epoxies will ultimately need to become more eco-friendly.
One technology that has already broken through the environmental barrier is Construction Systems Supply Corporation’
NOVOLAC epoxies are high-end epoxies that are generated using a special chemical compound (Bis F). This particular compound results in an epoxy with improved chemical and heat resistance. While epoxies generated with the more common Bis A compound will typically handle 70% sulfuric acid, a good NOVOLAC epoxy will handle 97% or 98% sulfuric acid.
