Epoxy is a thick, hard and clear layer that can also be applied on the surface of a pin-badge to further protect its finish from humidity and oxidization.
Epoxy is an exceptionally tough adhesive or bedding material that is activated by mixing two component resins together, just prior to use. The resins combine in a chemical reaction to form a new compound that sets very hard and provides an incredibly strong and durable adhesive bond to the tesserae. This is also often used on Soft Enamel badges as a coating to give it a smooth, domed appearance.
