Automotive Applications for Bakelite®  Engineering Thermosets

MC Pulley Steering Pump2

Hexion’s thermosetting 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.
