Bakelite’s Molding Compounds for Household and Other Applications

Molding compounds based on Bakelite® resins can be easily shaped into an infinite variety of contours and forms and can be modified in various ways to provide added dimensional stability, flame resistance, electrical conductivity or slip resistance. From stove fittings to housings for domestic appliances, Bakelite® thermoset molding compounds are utilized 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. Bakelite customer service and application research as well as our worldwide distribution network means you have a reliable, experienced raw material supplier.
