Our wide range of phenolic, urea and melamine resins add strength, durability and fire resistance to countless materials in the Building, Construction and Transportation sector, several Industrial applications, Chemical intermediates and Specialties.
Resonance™ aromatic polyols are building blocks that improve fire resistance, insulation performance and production efficiency of PUR and PIR foams.
Our engineering thermosets are used across a number of industries including building materials, automotive, industrial, electronics and more.
We offer a robust portfolio of formaldehyde and derivative products as well as the ability to tailor grades to your specialized needs.
Bakelite is an integral supplier of building materials including:
Laminates: resins and films for high & low pressure laminates, primers and catalysts. Resins for phenolic, PUR and PIR foam and glass and stone wool for superior fire resistance and insulation performance with low/no residual monomer emissions.
We are an established supplier to a wide variety of transportation applications including:
Friction: disc/drum brakes, clutch facings, Acoustic and thermal insulation, Oil and air filtration, Rubber compounding, Fire resistant composites for masstransit, Molding Compounds
Our products allow the fabrication of high performance industrial products including:
Abrasives: bonded and coated abrasives with longer shelf life Refractory and products with high carbon yield Impregnation resins for superior filtration performance Briquetting: enable the reuse of high value raw materials.
Specialty grades are tailor made to fit exacting customer needs for:
Non-BPA food contact coatings, anticorrosion coatings, Demulsifiers, asphaltene dispersants and proppants for enhanced oil recovery, Improved performance rubber-tometal adhesives, Epoxy intermediates, Specialty resins for semi-conductors including photoresists and the production of printed circuit boards and printing plates.
To protect against climate change we are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and we strive to efficiently using natural resources, optimizing existing processes and enhancing products and technologies through continuous innovation.
Our commercial, technical and product stewardship teams are passionate about supporting our business and partner with our customers to meet very individualized sustainability targets. By leveraging our technical expertise, applying innovative thinking and using alternative raw materials where possible, our products are widely used to turn renewable raw materials, such as wood, into highly engineered products by our downstream partners. This helps facilitate the transition towards a carbon neutral economy by providing technical solutions for energy conservation in Building and Construction and in the Transportation sector.
Since Leo Baekeland’s invention in 1907, products made with Bakelite resins have been highly valued for their durability and long life cycle expectations. Bakelite is working to develop resins that can further improve life cycle expectations through products that enable downstream articles to be recycled. We strive to continue to close the gap between the environment and economics.
By incorporating principles of Energy Management Systems and working closely with downstream partners that are obtaining environmental certifications, we are working to continually make a positive impact on the environment.
Now let’s talk about
your projects and targets!
Through the targeted use of renewable natural raw materials – such as wood flour which is a significant and integral part of the formulation – and the use of secondary raw materials, we have succeeded in closing the gap between ecology and economics.
Another important building block of sustainable resource management is recyclability. Bakelite® PF2020 technology is free of halogen and heavy metals which do not restrict the recyclability of articles made with these products.
… it’s what continues to drive us today. From making buildings more fire resistant. To realizing the future of transportation from electrics cars to space travel. To improving the productivity of our life-sustaining crops. And ways we haven’t even dreamed of quite yet. Together with manufacturers around the world, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish.
