Phenolic fast increasing demand for composite materials
News of the new network phenolic composites have broad market prospects, demand growth promotion. This is the information from the China Chemical Industry News reporter held in Suzhou by the end of November the fourth phenolic resin industry technical seminars available. The meeting was chaired by the National Centre for the Development of phenolic materials industry in the United Nations relevant industry associations, manufacturers jointly.
In recent years, the annual growth rate of 6% of the phenolic resin industry. With emphasis on material flame resistance, low smoke, low toxicity properties, heat resistance requirements, a variety of modified phenolic resin with glass fiber, carbon fibers, ceramic fibers, aromatic polyamide fiber-based system into a variety of composites , the increasingly widespread use.
Various methods of heat-modified phenolic resin has become the core of research. Currently phenolic foam fire energy saving, new phenolic resin - research benzoxazine resin, urea-formaldehyde phenol process and preparation of inorganic composite phenolic foam reaction, the quasi-neutral high flame retardant phenolic foam insulation material, etc., have made significant progress and lead high phenolic resin product development.
With the development of downstream industries and applications continue to broaden, phenolic molding compounds, refractories, friction materials, wood adhesives, casting materials, insulation materials, abrasive, insulating laminates and other fields, will usher in rapid phenolic resin development period, the average growth rate can exceed 10%.
