urea formaldehyde resin
Urea formaldehyde resin is a highly cross linked thermosetting polymer primarily made up of urea and formaldehyde with formaldehyde acting as the cross linker. The urea-formaldehyde reaction is acid curing and heat accelerated for forming a rigid, crystalline-like polymer. Urea resins are noted for their fast cure, high strength and cost effectiveness. Due to their reactive nature, UF resins are some of the fastest curing resins available. At high temperature, they can be cured in as little as 2 seconds. Urea formaldehyde resins are stable, fast curing and highly customizable making them an excellent choice for a wide array of applications, some of which are: Wet laid fiberglass mat Decorative laminates Air filtration Coated and bonded abrasives Wood composites.
