Epoxy resin Pegboards can be mounted on walls, uprights, and columns to create a vertical drainage and drying zone for laboratory glassware such as test tubes, beakers, or bottles. Pegboards are also available in vertical configurations. Pegboards and drying racks made of Durcon Epoxy Resin support glassware with specially engineered "no twist" two-prong polypropylene pegs that are angled at a 30 degree angle to provide the maximum amount of support.
Epoxy resin Pegboards are equipped with two-pronged Oval polypropylene pegs in either black or white. These pegs are angled at a horizontal 30 degree angle to provide good support for laboratory glassware as well as drainage.
In the role of supplemental material, 2 "There is a stainless steel drip tray with a width of 51 millimeters available to fit any size pegboard. PVC tubing is included with this package.
The monolithic nature of a molded Durcon pegboard 1 "products made of a thick cast epoxy resin. Available in a variety of hues, however the black variety is the standard in the business. The one-of-a-kind molding and curing process guarantees that a full chemical reaction will take place within the created material, which will ultimately result in a chemically resistant surface that is uniform and of the best possible quality.
Drying racks designed for epoxy pegboards are most frequently seen in the 11 5300 - Laboratory Equipment area. Pegboards made of epoxy resin can also be found under the Section 12 3600 Countertops category.
Epoxy resin is the preferred material for pegboard in demanding situations such as laboratories, classrooms, and research facilities because of the material's exceptional resistance to chemicals, durability, inability to catch fire, and inability to absorb liquids. In order to ensure a long life and reliable service from the epoxy pegboards, proper care and maintenance should be performed.
Epoxy Coatings: How to Choose the Right One
Epoxy coatings are utilized often in a variety of settings, including residential, commercial, institutional, industrial, maritime, and transportation applications. Epoxy coatings can have a wide variety of performance characteristics, thus several kinds of curing agents are required to bring out those features. The epoxy resin is transformed into a fully functional epoxy coating as a result of a reaction between the curing agents and the epoxy resins, which results in the formation of a cross-linked network. For someone who isn't prepared, choose one sort of epoxy to use instead of the others can be a real challenge. There are certain fundamental distinctions to be made between polyamide epoxies, polyamine epoxies, phenolic epoxies, and novolac epoxies, which are outlined in the following:
A. Polyamide Epoxies
Coatings made of polyamide epoxy are cured with a curing agent that consists of some kind of reactive polyamide resin. The reaction of long chain fatty acid dimers with multifunctional amines led to the formation of these reactive polyamides. These terminal amines are separated by a significant amount of molecular distance, which contributes to a significant decrease in the vapor pressure of the resin. Primers often make use of polyamide epoxies because of their recoatability, flexibility, and adhesion, in addition to their enhanced wetting qualities and increased corrosion resistance. They have a modest level of chalk resistance and only a moderate level of acid resistance, but they tend to be more resistant to moisture, weather, and alkali.
B. Epoxies derived from polyamines
Epoxies that have been cured with polyamine are typically used to increase the film's hardness, as well as its abrasion and chemical resistance. There are several different types of amines, including aliphatic amines, cycloaliphatic amines, aromatic amines, ketamine, and phenalkamines, among others. Epoxy coatings benefit from a diverse set of chemical resistance properties because to the large variety of amines used in their production. Epoxies that are treated with polyamine offer increased resistance to the corrosion that is caused by microorganisms. These epoxies are distinguished by their shorter pot lives and recoat windows, in addition to their resilience to chemicals and high temperatures.
Note the Difference: Polyamide cured epoxies provide better flexibility, better abrasion resistance, improved corrosion resistance, and are relatively safer to use. In contrast, polyamine cured epoxies are tough, more chemically resistant, brittle, and provide improved abrasion resistance. Note the Difference: Polyamide cured epoxies provide better flexibility, better abrasion resistance, improved corrosion resistance, and are relatively safer to use.
C. Phenolic Epoxies
In most cases, when people talk about phenolic epoxy, they are referring to a system in which an epoxy resin is heat-cured together with a phenolic resin. Can liners and drum liners that need to be highly resistant to chemicals have typically been lined using formulations of this sort.
D. Novolac Epoxies
Epoxidation of the acid catalyzed reaction product of phenol and formaldehyde is the foundation of the manufacturing process for Novolac epoxy resins. Typically, applications that require greater resistance to chemicals and/or higher temperatures are the ones that make use of epoxies with these characteristics. In most cases, they need to be heated in order to completely cure, but in certain cases, they may be designed to cure at room temperature.
At the same time as polymer technology advances, several types of curing agents that are optimized for certain environments also become available. Because there are so many different iterations of each of these, it is very difficult to compare similar values based just on the information that is provided on the product data sheet. Before choosing an epoxy coating for a certain application, you should always consult ResinTops technical specialist first.
