Formaldehyde (UF) Resins
cost effectiveness and versatility have made UF resins the workhorse of amino
resin technology. Hexion, as the leading supplier of urea resins
worldwide, brings broad UF chemistry and process knowledge to bear offering
solutions tailored to individual business needs.
formaldehyde resin is a highly crosslinked thermosetting polymer
primarily made up of urea and formaldehyde with formaldehyde acting as the
crosslinker. The urea-formaldehyde reaction is acid curing and heat
accelerated for forming a rigid, crystalline-like polymer. Urea resins are
noted for their fast cure, high strength and cost effectiveness. Due to their
reactive nature, UF resins are some of the fastest curing resins available. At
high temperature, they can be cured in as little as 2 seconds.
resins are stable, fast curing and highly customizable making them an excellent
choice for a wide array of applications, some of which are:
