Market leadership

Araldite epoxy systems offer a unique blend of properties which enables civil engineers to solve various problems for which conventional materials have proven inadequate.

To illustrate, the losses due to corrosion in India are estimated at Rs 8000 crores every year. Araldite based Protective coatings help in controlling losses and hence are of considerable Importance.

Very evident from  the above  chart, Epoxies give far better  mechanical  properties  than any other  systems. In most  cases the ‘Bonding  Strength’ of Epoxies is better  than ‘Tensile Strength’ of cement concrete; making  the repair more  durable and hence Epoxies are the obvious  choice for various users.
