The article offers information on phenolic resins. The entry notes that phenolics have been used in industries since the late 19th century, and are usually obtained from wood by-products and coal distillates. It cites that the first synthetic adhesives were produced from phenol-formaldehyde resins, while melamine was produced from amine-treated phenol resins. It mentions that the fire-retardant, and low smoke generation properties of phenolics make the material useful for high temperature binding in foundry and sand molds.
