Glass Molding Compounds PF is a subcategory of Phenol-formaldehyde Plastic. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.5 to 1.52. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 10 to 51 x 10-6/°C.
Phenol-formaldehyde Plastic, also known as PF, is a thermoset polycondensate. The most common trade name is Bakelite. phenol-formaldehyde A naturally brittle material in pure form, it is able to be strengthened with fillers such as wood pulp and cellulose. PF is the first volume-produced synthesized polymer resin. It was widely used in early consumer electronic products such as telephones and radios.
