Epoxies are probably the most versatile family of adhesives because they bond well to many substrates and can be easily modified to achieve widely varying properties, therefore they take up a large share of the adhesives market. They can be formulated to be flexible or rigid and to cure at room temperature or higher temperature under dry or wet conditions. While they are capable of bonding non-structural substrates, they show excellent performance in structural bonding applications. Epoxy glues can be formulated from low viscosity unfilled liquid to higher viscosity filled pastes. Most commercially available epoxy structural adhesives are either single-component, heat curing adhesives or multiple-component adhesives that cure at either room or elevated temperature.
There is no universally “best epoxy adhesive” for all applications . For an adhesive bond to be useful, not only must it withstand the mechanical forces that are acting on it, but also it must resist the operating environment or the chemical forces that are applied. Strength and performance are influenced by many common environmental elements. These include high and low temperatures, moisture or relative humidity, chemical fluids, and harsh outdoor weathering.
Considering the fact that there is no best epoxy glue for all applications, here at CEC Corp, we decided to manufacture some general purpose epoxy glue like C-POXY 5 or C-POXY 30 that perform at an above market expectations. We also manufacture high performance epoxy adhesive like C-TOUGH that can be used in structural bondings and works for a wide variety of niche applications such as knife making, aluminum, fiberglass, and wooden boats production, golf club assembling, and more general industry uses.
Along with those products, CEC Corp has started developing a system to categorize our epoxy glues based on specific markets. This is because we’ve realized that each industry has a specific set of requirements therefore it serves our customers best if we create usage specific epoxies for different applications. CEC Corp’s upcoming products such as C-POXY Marine and C-POXY Golf have been developed based on this concept.
Here at CEC Corp our goal is creating high quality products. Along with that, we’ve set an equally important goal of moving all our production towards a greener manufacturing process.
As a Canadian manufacturer we’ve done our best to look into the future and think of the generations to come. In order to create a better environment for our children, we have been developing bio-based epoxy glues and coatings. C-POXY Bio is going to be the first epoxy glue specially used for woodworking and cement bonding based on this belief.
Considering the rate of growth in new technology that creates many innovative applications, CEC Corp decided to create custom made products based on our customers' needs in addition to mass-producing our existing products. This approach helps us in aligning our paths with our customers and move forward and grow with them as partners. We’re always happy to receive requests and orders from our customers for their specific requirements and solving problems together. CEC Corp’s R&D team’s knowledge and expertise has allowed us to form these partnerships successfully.
Our goal in CEC Corp is to expand our epoxies in four main categories. Adhesives, coatings, castings (potting), and composites.
