Protective coatings and linings made from epoxy resins are workhorses in modern corrosion control technology. These resins have a wide range of physical properties, and cure to form dry films through a variety of different mechanisms. Each of these factors affects the performance of the coating, and an understanding of the chemistry involved can readily assist in the selection and use of coatings and linings for particular service conditions. This article surveys the generic types of epoxy resins available for use in coatings, discusses some of the chemistry involved in converting them to cured films, and points out performance properties of the different resins which would cause them to be favored for certain applications.
