Phenolic is a type of thermosetting resin that is obtained through a curing process (bachelorisation). This is caused by thermosetting resins that, when subjected to heat and catalysts, give rise to an insoluble mass that can be used as an insulation and coating material. The result is a resin that guarantees considerable thermal and chemical resistance, as well as excellent adhesive properties. In addition, its use will ensure high strength and low moisture absorption to the finished product. Some types of phenolic are also reinforced with paper, fabric as well as glass fibre and aramid.
