Bakelite® urea-formaldehyde and phenol-formaldehyde resins are used in coated abrasives, bonded abrasives and wheels, sandpaper, scrub pads and other industrial abrasive applications. Introducing BREAKTHRU™ technology, a unique development that laboratory analysis has shown to decrease free formaldehyde to less than 0.1% versus the typical 0.3-1.5% in phenolic resins. Other potential benefits include reduced free phenol and solvent elimination, with the attendant VOC reduction. Examples of our resins for abrasives applications are below.
