From Formaldehyde to Finished Good

The biggest category of products that come from formaldehyde are wood and industrial resins. This includes urea formaldehyde, phenol formaldehyde, and melamine formaldehyde binders and adhesives, which are used in many ways. For example:

  • Making engineered wood products like plywood, particleboard, and fiberboard
  • Creating industrial items such as abrasives, foam insulation, and molded parts
  • Coatings for cars
  • Durable consumer goods

Hexion is a big player in the global formaldehyde market, and we use a lot of it ourselves to make these resins.

Some of the typical formaldehyde products we offer for these resin applications include:
