Phenolic Engineered Thermosets for Automotive Under-the-Hood Components

Our Bakelite® phenolic resin systems can be used in a wide range of under-the-hood applications and support multiple injection molding and compression molding techniques. Examples include: engine attachments, pump parts, pulleys, pistons, carbon brush holders, electrical end plates, vacuum pumps, water pump housings, and electrical encapsulation. Composites made with these products can be 30-40% lighter than aluminum and deliver very high:

  • Heat tolerance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Fatigue resistance
  • Mechanical strength
  • Precision shaping
