Arofene™ phenolic resins and adhesives

Arofene phenolic resins are used as media saturants providing heat, chemical and water resistance as well as other specialized properties such as a frictional coefficient. They are also used as prepreg resins for laminating applications, as base resins or fortifiers for adhesives or as a resin used to adhere sizing to paper in abrasive applications.

Arofene phenolic adhesives are used to bond non-metallic materials, such as transmission friction media, brake pads and metal plates. They are also used as anticorrosion primers and sound deadening coatings, and used in sheet laminating.
