"If your application requires exceptional heat resistance, surface hardness, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and electronic insulation properties, there is no better material than Bakelite-phenolic resin."
HEXION Bakelite: Wide spectrum for the different applications
The epoxy resins have assumed a leading role in the most varied of application areas, and have had a fundamental influence on the technical development of this class of plastics.
The application areas range from the communication, to the automobile industry, aeronautics, heavy-duty corrosion protection, the electrical industry and wind energy, and through to the civil engineering.
With respect to duroplastic and thermoplastic moulding compounds, the products are predominantly in the automobile, household and electrical area.
In the automobile industry, the moulding compounds are used in the engine compartment, in the braking system and in vehicle interiors for example.
The moulding compounds are used in the electrical industry for circuit breakers, automatic fuses, electricity meters and commutators.
Bakelite moulding compounds are used to produce household devices such as kitchen and electrical appliances.
