Versatile Phenolic Resin Options for Diverse Purposes
resins are available in a variety of forms such as phenolic, cresol and alkylphenol novolacs and resoles, and as powder, solvent-based and water-based solutions. By optimizing our resins’ attributes such as reactivity, moisture content, molecular weight, pH, and flow, we offer a wide range of products to fill customers’ processing and performance requirements.
Hexion manufactures both modified and unmodified resole resins with varying properties, to meet customers‘ processing and performance needs. Resoles are cured in a single step by exposure to heat or acids, and develop the high degree of cross linkage responsible for their great stability. Benefits of Bakelite
phenolic resoles include: excellent hardness, good thermal stability and relative chemical imperviousness.
Hexion's phenolic resole resins are the binding agents of choice in a variety of industrial applications such as:
Composites for mass transit
Foams for thermal insulation
