Apr 2022. Phenol-formaldehyde resins, commonly referred to as phenolic resins, are thermosetting plastics used in a variety of applications. They are noted for their high thermal resistance and strength, and also for their fire-resistant properties. They are used mainly in forest products, and in molding, refractories, friction, abrasive, rubber processing, and other applications. Wood adhesives will continue to have the largest market share and will drive phenolic resin consumption on a global scale. Use of phenol-formaldehyde resins for composite boards is highest in North America and South America, as producers of oriented strandboard (OSB) and softwood plywood favor the use of phenol-formaldehyde over competitive adhesives. In Europe, producers of plywood favor phenol-formaldehyde. In most parts of Asia, there has been little production of OSB, but high production of hardwood plywood.
