Bakelite’s Molding Compounds for Electrical and Electronics Applications

Bakelite’s thermoset  molding compounds are utilized in a variety of electronic applications when there must be a combination of:

  • Good electrical insulating properties and high heat resistance
  • Rigidity
  • Surface hardness
  • High elastic modulus and
  • Good solvent resistance

Even if the recommended operating temperature range is temporarily exceeded, dimensional stability will be maintained with Bakelite® molding compound.

Specific applications for our molding compounds include:

  • LS and FI switches
  • Performance and motor safety switches
  • Energy regulators, relays, thermostats
  • Electromagnetic coils and coil forms
  • Electric and gas meters
  • Lamp sockets 


  • Bakelite® Phenolic Molding Compounds
  • Bakelite Polyester Molding Compounds
  • Bakelite Epoxy Molding Compounds

Product Advantages

  • Favorable fire behavior
  • Good thermo mechanical behavior, no cold flow
  • Very good dimensional stability
  • High strength, rigidity and surface hardness
  • Good electrical and thermal insulating properties

Industrial Applications

  • Heavy-duty commutators
  • Power tools
