Introduction

Phenol-formaldehyde Plastic, also known as PF, or Phenolic, has been mass-produced since 1909.
  - It is a thermoset polycondensate.
- Applications: PF is the first volume-produced synthesized polymer resin. It was widely used in early consumer electronic products such as telephones and radios.
- General properties: A naturally brittle material in pure form, it is able to be strengthened with fillers such as wood pulp and cellulose.
- Trade Name: Bakelite.
