Introduction of Terpene Phenolic Resin


Terpene Phenolic Resin


Terpene phenolic resin (CAS: 68648-57-7) is a resin that is widely used in various industries. It can be classified into two main market types – synthetic resin and natural resin.

Synthetic resin is a polycondensate synthesized by phenols (such as phenol, cresol, and xylenol) and aldehydes (such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and furfural) at a certain temperature through acid or alkali catalysis.  It offers consistent quality and performance. On the other hand, natural resin is derived from organic sources, such as trees, and is valued for its unique properties and environmental sustainability.


Terpene phenolic resin has the advantages of its low cost and raw material availability, simple processes and production equipment, excellent mechanical properties, heat and chemical resistance, electrical insulation, and flame retardance. It is widely used in various aspects.
