Phenolic Board Market: Introduction
Phenolic board is plywood like material which is manufactured with the help of woven fabrics/ high density thermo-setting cellulose fabrics along with phenolic resins. Phenolic board is also known by the name of phenolic panels. Phenolic board is not made from wood, therefore it does not have problems related to plywood. Phenolic board is manufactured by compressing/pressing woven fabrics/cellulose fabrics with phenolic resins under high pressure. Phenolic boards have high UV resistance, chemical resistance, moisture resistance and abrasion resistance along with high mechanical strength. On the core surface of phenolic boards numerous materials such as laminates, wood panels can be used, owing to its characteristic properties it is used for different purposes in building and construction industry. Phenolic boards is used in the construction of small cabins or cubicles for changing room, toilets, bathroom etc. Phenolic boards are also used in furniture making and construction of lockers used in changing rooms.
