Abstract : Epoxy-resin systems have been formulated, sold, and used for a wide variety of applications because of their strength, adhesion, stability at high temperatures, resistance to chemical attack, abrasion resistance, and electrical characteristics. This report reviews the available literature and manufacturers' publications to determine the potential uses of epoxy resins on Civil Works projects. These possible uses fall into three general categories: adhesives, fillers, and coatings. The particular epoxy-resin system to be employed in a given application should be carefully selected to have the most appropriate characteristics as related to requirements of application, properties after curing, and lowest cost.
