Urea Formaldehyde Resins Production Cost Analysis 2021

Urea formaldehyde resins or urea-methanal is a non-transparent thermosetting resin or polymer. It is manufactured from urea and formaldehyde. These resins are used in areas like adhesives, finishes, particleboard, medium-density fibreboard or MDF, and moulded objects.

Urea formaldehyde resins and related amino resins belong to a group of thermosetting resins of which urea-formaldehyde resins make up to 80% of the products manufactured globally. Some of the examples of where these resins are used, include—in automobile tyres to boost the bondings of rubber to tyre cord, in the paper for improving tear strength, in moulding electrical devices, and inside jar caps, among others.

It has a refractive index of 1.55. About 20 million metric tons of UF resins are manufactured annually. More than 70% of this manufactured product is put into use by the industry of forest products to form bonding particleboard, medium-density fibreboard, hardwood plywood, and laminating adhesive.
