Film-Forming Material

Phenol-Formaldehyde Resin

Phenol formaldehyde resins (PF) are synthetic polymers obtained by the reaction of phenol or substituted phenol with formaldehyde. Used as the basis for Bakelite, PFs were the first commercial synthetic resins (plastics). They have been widely used for the production of molded products including billiard balls, laboratory countertops, and as coatings and adhesives. They were at one time the primary material used for the production of circuit boards but have been largely replaced with epoxy resins and fiberglass cloth, as with fire-resistant FR-4 circuit board materials.There are two main production methods. One reacts phenol and formaldehyde directly to produce a thermosetting network polymer, while the other restricts the formaldehyde to produce a prepolymer known as novolac which can be moulded and then cured with the addition of more formaldehyde and heat. There are many variations in both production and input materials that are used to produce a wide variety of resins for special purposes.


Esters of acrylic acid and methacrylic acid, more commonly known as acrylates and methacrylates are key raw materials in the coatings and printing industry, and in food packaging.

Film-forming Material refers to the ability to adhere to the substance to form a film, which is the basis of coatings. It determines the basic characteristics of the coating, mainly including grease and resin, but also includes some non-volatile reactive diluents. Polymer resins or oils are the main film-forming substances of coatings and are essential in any coatings. ECHEMI Film-Forming Material provides a reliable supplier of film-forming material products and raw materials.
