    Cellobond™ Phenolic Resins for Composites

    Hexion provides a wide array of phenolic resins for producing lightweight composites where high heat performance, excellent mechanical properties or resistance to fire, smoke and toxicity are required. Our Cellobond™ resin systems, part of Hexion’s Bakelite® family of phenolic resins, are particularly suited to structural and decorative applications in the rail, aerospace, and marine/offshore industries.



    High-Performing Composite Resin Systems for Rail Components

    From the New York City Transit System to the London Underground and across the European railway system, Hexion’s phenolic composite resins are specified for their unrivalled fire performance. Unlike alternative composite systems, Hexion’s phenolic resins are inherently flame retardant and do not require fillers, making them easier to process and lower in weight. For these reasons, our Cellobond™ resins and Phencat™ catalysts are used in a variety of components including window frames, interior linings, overhead compartments, tables and arm rests as well as more structural parts such as train fronts.

    Cellobond™ resin technology, used with Phencat™ catalysts, is designed to suit a range of composite processing techniques. We also offer a variety of finishing options, for when aesthetics are important.
