Formaldehyde Solutions and Concentrate

A BROAD SPECTRUM of formaldehyde solutions and UF concentrate (UFC) are used in a range of industries.

Solutions of formaldehyde or formalin are used in the manufacture of synthetic resins due to their high reactivity with phenol, urea, melamine and other similar compounds. Bakelite Synthetics produces formaldehyde (HCHO) or formalin solutions at concentrations up to 52%, in both uninhibited and methanol-inhibited grades. Although these are the most popular formulations, we have the capability and expertise to customize unique formulations to meet your specific needs.

Bakelite® formaldehyde solutions are used as a raw material in a broad range of industries and applications including molded articles; high-pressure laminates; adhesives for plywood and particleboard as well as other wood panelboard products; coatings; varnishes and enamels; foundry core and shell binders; glass and mineral wool insulation; and fertilizers.

We also manufacture INSOL-U-25® and STA-FORM 60® urea-formaldehyde concentrates (UFC), often called UFC85, which are used as precursors for fertilizers, urea-formaldehyde resins for wood adhesives and other industrial applications.

We produce Bakelite formaldehyde (HCHO) solutions and INSOL-U-25 and STA-FORM 60 UFC at strategically placed plants across the United States. Our capacity and diversity of manufacturing locations allow us to effectively support formaldehyde and UFC supply to the merchant market and our customers.
