The adaptability and uniqueness of epoxy resins make them ideal for a variety of
industrial applications, including surface coatings, electronic part encapsulation,
composite matrices for wind energy blades, automotive, and aerospace.
Unmodified epoxy resins are used in a limited number of high-performance applications, due to their inherent brittleness and low impact resistance. The
drawbacks of epoxies can be solved by modifying them prior to use. Because
of their superior mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties, modified epoxy
resins are now widely used in the manufacturing of synthetic fiber-reinforced
composites and the manufacture of various industrial products. This chapter
presents a systematic review of recent literature on the structure of epoxies, as
well as their synthesis and various factors influencing final properties. This
chapter also aims to cover the recent developments in synthetic fiber-based
epoxy composites, such as manufacturing processes and industrial applications.
