Epoxy-diane oligomer ED-20, hardener polyethylene polyamine, and micro dispersed particles of iron-carbide mixture synthesized by high-voltage electric discharge have been used for the formation of Composite Materials (CMs) and protective coatings for the transport industry. The dependence of the adhesive, physical, and mechanical properties and residual stresses of epoxy composites on the content of micro dispersed powders has been studied in this paper. It has been proved that for the formation of a composite material or protective coating with improved adhesion and cohesion properties, the optimal content of particles is 0.5 wt.% per 100 wt.% of epoxy oligomer ED-20. Such materials are characterized by increased mechanical strength and the ability to resist static and shock loads, as their properties are significantly increased. The obtained results of the experimental studies of the physical and mechanical properties of composite materials correlate with the studied results of adhesive characteristics, which indicate their veracity.
