    Bakelite® Phenolic Molding Compounds

    Hexion phenolic molding compounds and engineering thermosets – based on Bakelite® resins – are found in a variety of applications from household articles such as pot handles, toaster parts and fittings for ovens and dishwashers to automotive items such as brake pistons, lamp casings and pump parts.



    Bakelite® Engineering Thermosets for Today’s Demanding Automotive Market 

    As engines are downsized to meet increased fuel efficiency standards and reduced CO2 emission requirements – and under-the-hood temperatures rise – there is an increasing demand for cost-effective, lightweight, heat tolerant material solutions.


    Bakelite® engineering thermosets deliver a variety of performance benefits for under-the-hood components from pulleys to vacuum and fuel pump parts including:

    • Up to 40 percent weight savings versus aluminum
    • Excellent mechanical strength
    • Resistance to fuel and other automotive chemicals

    • Complex, high precision shapes are possible
