General Purpose Molding Compounds

PF Phenolic (Resoles or Novolacs)

Hexion’s phenolic molding compounds (PF-MC) are used in a variety of applications. Products containing organic and inorganic fillers are used for:

  • Ashtrays
  • Pot handles
  • Control housing for power brakes

Specific modifications provide dimensionally stable, flame-resistant grades that are used for products such as:

  • Coil bodies
  • Pump components
  • Kitchen oven handles

Special developed and modified phenolic molding compounds feature electrically conductive grades that can be galvanically chrome plated. Application examples include:

  • Metallized control knobs
  • Oven handles in kitchen appliances
