Phenolics are in a class of their own. Made from phenolic resins or epoxy, the result is a durable and stiff material. This material also has excellent chemical and physical properties. Electrical insulation, construction materials, and automotive parts typically contain phenolic plastics in some capacity. Plus, this material’s versatility provides the possibility of combining resins with materials such as paper, woven cotton, glass fiber, and canvas.

When your business needs phenolic thermoset plastics, contact Polymershapes. Polymershapes carries thermoset materials as sheets or tubes, ensuring you have the best option for your company’s plastic-related project.

Key Properties of Phenolic Plastics

Phenolics are widely used. This versatile material’s vital properties include being resistant to abrasion, heat, corrosion, impact, solvents, fire, and chemicals. These factors make phenolic plastic incredibly durable while also being lightweight enough for use in a wide range of applications. With their ability to withstand both friction and material fatigue, phenolic plastic sheets and tubes won’t wear out on you.

These plastics are also thermo-hardening, meaning they harden through crosslinking during the heat application process. Thermo-hardening ensures that phenolic plastic maintains its structural integrity in extreme conditions. It’s also compressive with incredible tensile and flexural strength. Phenolic plastic is ideal for use across many industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, infrastructure, and consumer products.

Ideal for A Wide Range of Applications

Phenolic plastic is particularly tough, making it ideal for various applications, including aerospace or automotive parts such as armored trucks, buses, and trains. It’s also perfect for construction, machine shops, mining, and manufacturing industrial parts like bearings, gaskets, die cutters, gears, and more.
