Transparency Market Research
Resorcinol formaldehyde resins are special class of chemicals used in the production of tires, hoses, belts, rubberized fabrics, and other rubber products. Resorcinol reacts with formaldehyde to form resorcinol formaldehyde resin, a form of polymer. Resorcinol formaldehyde resins usually cure at room temperature and are soluble in water, ketones, and alcohols prior to curing. Resorcinol formaldehyde resins form a strong bond that is resistant to moisture, acids, and weathering. These resins are used as adhesives for wood veneers, plywood, and rubber-textile laminates. Resorcinol formaldehyde resins are primarily employed in automotive and construction industries. They are used for wood binding applications to address issues such as room temperature cure and structural integrity. Unique properties of resorcinol formaldehyde resin include good heat resistance, electrical insulation, dimensional stability, and chemical resistance.
