COATINGS, ADHESIVES, SEALANTS,ENCAPSULATION AND INK RESINS

BAKELITE SYNTHETICS brings decades of experience and a portfolio of proven products to enhance your coatings, adhesive or ink program.

Our products provide formulation latitude as they are compatible with many types of polymers including epoxies, polyesters, vinyl, acrylics and alkyds while being soluble in a variety of solvents including alcohols and ketones. Products are also dilutable in aromatics. Recognized benefits of Bakelite® phenolic resins include chemical resistance, electrical resistivity, corrosion resistance and excellent adhesion to metal. Films made of phenolic resins can be used in abrasion-resistant and thermal barrier films.

We know that every application and formulation is different. Our knowledge of these resins provides us the foundation to select or develop the product that will meet your specific need.

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 possible solvent elimination in some applications with the attendant VOC reduction.
