As we discussed in concept

Thermosetting Polymers -

They are highly cross - linked, hard, infusible and insoluble polymers.They cannot be reused.

- wherein

Eg:-  Bakellite, Urea,  Formaldehyde, Resin, etc



Phenol formaldehyde resin/ Bakellite/ Novolac -

- Obtained by the condensation reaction of phenol with formaldehyde.

- Step growth, Copolymer.

- Novolac is linear

- Bakellite is cross linked.

- wherein

- Hard and brittle

- Novolac is used in paints.

- Bakellite is used in making combs, phonograph records, electrical goods.



Novolac and Bakelite are thermosetting polymer.
