Bakelite® Phenolic Resins for Mineral Wool Applications

Bakelite phenolic resins are among the preferred binders for glass wool, stone wool and slag wool used in thermal and acoustical insulation for construction, as well as for insulation for industrial applications and appliances. Our product line includes inorganic catalyzed resoles as well as self-reacting organic catalyzed resoles for improved storage stability, and resoles manufactured with renewable raw materials.

Mineral wool manufacturers choose our products because our materials can impart important mechanical properties, such as:

  • Softness
  • Shape recovery
  • Moisture resistance
  • Fire resistance

Optimization of Bakelite resin grades with our customers’ manufacturing processes help the resulting products meet the most demanding building materials regulations for indoor VOC emissions:

  • Reduce process emissions OLV (occupational limit values) during mineral wool manufacturing
  • Reduce the process emissions stack
  • Comply with the French A+ regulation for building material emissions
