Industrial Resins

ASK offer a range of industrial resins based on phenol resols, phenolics and resorcinol formaldehyde resins. Carriers are either aqueous or alcohol based. Typical applications include impregnation of textiles for friction applications, requiring high flexibility, temperature resistance and friction values. Also used in can and coil coatings where good adhesion, hardness, flexibility and chemical resistance are required. Other applications include formulation of RFL's for rubber to textile adhesion promotion.


    • Resorcinol formaldehyde and phenol resol based resins for industrial use.

    • Aqueous or alcohol based continuous media.


    • Phenol resols allow for coatings with good adhesion, hardness and flexibility with excellent sterilization and chemical resistance (except to strong alkalines).

    • Resorcinol formaldehyde resins can be used to formulate RFL's with excellent rubber to textile adhesion.

    • Low viscosity phenol resols for impregnation give excellent flexibility, temperature resistance and high friction values.

    • Low formaldehyde content for phenol resols.

Typical Applications

    • Can and coil coatings.

    • Impregnations.

    • Friction pads.

    • Textile reinforced rubber composites.

    • Cross-linker for epoxy and polyester resins for packaging coatings.
