About Urea Formaldehyde Resins. Urea Formaldehyde Resins (a.k.a. UF) is a thermosetting synthetic amino resin, with different characteristics depending on its composition. The urea:formaldehyde ratio is an important parameter: near unit values, the resulting resin doesn’t have any adhesive properties. If this ratio is reduced in the course of the formation reaction, the resulting resin will possess highly adhesive properties. Urea-formaldehyde makes up 80% of all amino resins produced worldwide.
Chemical Formula. [(O)CNHCH2NH]n
Commercial Grades. polymer grade (99.5% minimum purity) and commercial grade (varies from 20 to 95% purity).
Uses. Urea Formaldehyde resins are mainly employed as adhesive for wood (chipboard, furniture, plywood, etc); molding compounds; viscosity control agent for cosmetics; textile finishing agent; in sound/heat insulation foam manufacturing; production of slow release nitrogen fertilizers; and food packaging (as adhesive).
- Urea + formaldehyde (carbonyl condensation reaction, followed by polymerization).
