Epoxy coatings technology has undergone reasonable advancements since its inception in the 1950s. After US restrictions on some Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in the 70s, single protective coatings could no longer meet solvent content requirements, hence they were discontinued.
Thankfully, this further strengthened the position of epoxy coatings as an optimal material choice for several industries.
In recent years, epoxy coatings have become the mainstay element of the protective coatings industry because of their superior chemical and physical properties-epoxy coatings are excellent adhesives, corrosion-resistant, and possess high mechanical strength.
