Epoxy has become a staple in a wide range of industries. From shipbuilding to art production, from interior decoration to composite repair. What might be surprising, however, is that this versatile and innovative polymeric material has its roots in the maritime world.


The origin of epoxy dates back to the 1930s, when it was first developed as a protective coating for ships. At that time, scientists were looking for solutions to protect the metal surfaces of boats from wear and tear caused by salt water, sunlight and corrosion. This was how it was discovered, because of its adhesive, waterproof and corrosion-resistant properties, which made it ideal for this purpose.

The initial use of epoxy as a coating for ships quickly proved to be a success in that it allowed boats to extend their lives and reduce the need for costly repairs and maintenance.


In the years since its discovery, epoxy has found use in a wide range of fields. In construction, it has been used to create strong and durable surfaces for floors, wall coverings, and countertops; in electronics, it has been used to protect circuit boards and sensitive components from corrosion and moisture; in art and design, it has become a popular medium for creating three-dimensional artwork, glossy paintings, and translucent jewelry.

Today, epoxy resin is considered one of the most versatile and innovative materials available. Its ability to adapt to a wide range of applications and its resistance to adverse environmental conditions make it an ideal choice for multiple purposes.
