UNDERSTANDING EPOXIES

Just as polyesters are a family of thermosetting resins with some basic similarities, epoxies are also a family of thermosetting resins with characteristics unique to themselves. The  differences in characteristics between polyesters and epoxies arise from many features of the polymers, but the root of the differences is the presence of one or more epoxy chemical groups (also called oxirane groups) in epoxy resin molecules and, in polyesters, the presence of the polyester and carbon-carbon double bonds.
