Bakelite® Phenolic Resins for Rubber Compounding

Bakelite’s family of resins for rubber compounding includes reinforcing resins, tackifiers, vulcanizing agents and adhesion promoters. Tackifier resin acts as a processing aid in unvulcanized rubber mixtures. reinforcing resins. For vulcanized rubber products, our resins improve:

  • Processability
  • Hardness
  • Tensile strength
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Temperature and chemical resistance
  • Outstanding adhesion, particularly of  tire cord to the rubber in steel belted radials tires. 

Examples of applications include automotive tires, oil- and gasoline resistant molded industrial goods, conveyer belts, hoses, seals, rubber rollers, and shoe soles. For bladders used for tire manufacture and air bags for spring elements as well as for pharmaceutical articles, the use of vulcanizing resins leads to high thermal and chemical resistance. 

Bakelite Synthetics has developed a new high performance phenolic tackifier resin, Bakelite® PF 6204 K, that leads to a high initial rubber tack but also to high long-term tack. No loss of adhesive strength occurs when the mix is stored over a lengthy period. There are no side effects on vulcanization and the resin features drop-in versatility to improve process stability The resin acts as a mild plasticizer, thus promoting distribution of the filler.
