Epoxy

Definition: a thermosetting polymer that is the reaction product of epoxy resin and an amino hardener.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Epoxy is an adhesive used for bonding concrete. Epoxy resins are used with concrete in the form of coatings, repair materials, grouts, bonding agents, paints, adhesives, epoxy mortars, sealers, penetrating sealers, wearing surfaces, and as admixtures to hydraulic cement concrete to make epoxy polymer-modified concrete. Epoxy coatings are used to isolate the steel from contact with oxygen, moisture, and chloride, thus preventing corrosion.
