BAKELITE / PHENOLIC

Bakelite sheets are hard, dense materials made by applying heat & pressure to layers of Cellulose Paper or Fabric cloth impregnated with synthetic resin ( phenolic resin ). When heat and pressure are applied, polymerization transforms the layers into Thermosetting Industrial Laminates.

Bakelite sheet is produced in different grades, mainly paper and fabric with various additives to meet different mechanical, electrical and thermal requirement.
