Formaldehyde resin is a synthetic resin product made with formaldehyde as a base ingredient. This product is used in a wide variety of settings and industries, and is one of the oldest synthetic resins around. Consumers most commonly encounter this substance in the context of a packaged product which includes it, such as MDF, a wood product commonly used in construction.
Phenols, melamine, urea, and aniline can all be used to make formaldehyde resin for various applications.
The chemicals are reacted with each other to create the resin, which can have varying properties, depending on the ingredients used. Some resins are designed to be sensitive to heat, with heat being needed to activate the resin, while others react with chemicals. The resin may be clear or colored, extremely strong and hard, waterproof, and so forth once the curing process is over and the resin has set.
