Bacallite was found and introduced to the world between 1907-1910 by the American-Belgian chemist, Lehondrick Buckland. It made from thermoplastic phenol formaldehyde and was the first composite plastic to be composed of composite materials. Electrical dissipation and heat resistance properties of this material have led to the use of Bakalit with the aim of producing various products in various industries such as electronics, electricity meters, kitchen appliances, aerospace, etc.
Bakalite is easily and quickly molded, which is a very important advantage in bulky products. Bakalite is a type of thermosetting compound and therefore retains its shape and does not deform when it is molded, even after exposure to heat or various solvents.
Bakalite is also a good choice for new developments in the field of electricity and automotive because of its extraordinary resistance to heat, electricity and chemicals, and are used in the production of electrical devices such as lamp sockets and electronic tubes, all kinds of electrical parts, insulations, etc.
