Epoxy Intermediates

Bakelite’s Resins as Epoxy / Cyanate Ester Intermediates

Producers of multifunctional epoxy resins and cyanate esters can draw from a range of Bakelite® and Durite™ phenolic resins to develop their products, including:

  • Ultra-low molecular weight phenol-formaldehyde novolacs
  • Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) phenol adducts
  • Cresol novolacs and bisphenol-A intermediates

These high Tg novolacs are produced within narrow molecular weight ranges to suit our customers’ needs. They are easily glycidated, contain low free monomer (phenol and cresol) concentrations, and are designed for epoxy chainextending reactions. Common applications for the epoxidized resins are printed circuit boards, heat-resistant composites and corrosion-resistant coatings.

Cyanate esters based on our chemical intermediates are well-suited for applications such as high temperature composites and adhesives that require high Tg ( 300C or higher). Phenolic resins enable important characteristics essential for electrical- and electronic-grade adhesives such as:

  • Low curing temperature
  • Excellent dielectric constant
  • Low moisture absorption
