Description

White crystalline phenol used as a Developer and Stabilizer for direct dyes. Resorcinol also reacts with Formaldehyde, Acetanilide, rubber, and other compounds to form polymers and azo dyes. Resorcinol formaldehyde resin cures at room temperature to form a very strong bond. It is commonly used as an Adhesive for wood veneers and rubber-textile laminates.
