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 possesses highly adhesives properties. Urea-formaldehyde makes up 80% of all amino resins produced worldwide.
Chemical Formula. [(O)CNHCH2NH]n
Commercial Grades. Polymer grade (min. 99.5% purity); commercial grade (varies from 20-95% purity)
Uses. Adhesive for wood (chipboard, furniture, plywood, etc); molding compounds; sound/heat insulation foam manufacturing; viscosity control agent for cosmetics; production of slow release nitrogen fertilizers; as a textile finishing agent; food packaging (as adhesive)
- Urea + formaldehyde (carbonyl condensation reaction, followed by polymerization).
