  • RFL adhesives (RFLs) are used to treat textiles to make them bondable to rubber. RFL stands for Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex. These three building blocks of RFLs are combined chemically to make a very strong, heat resistant, highly flexible adhesive which is ideally suited for rubber-to-fabric adhesion. 
  • Resorcinol is used in resins as an UV absorber. It is used in manufacturing fluorescent and leather dyes and adhesives (resorcinol formaldehyde resins). It is used as a pharmaceutical to treat acne and other greasy skin conditions in combination with other acne treatments such as sulfur. It is used as an anti-dandruff agent in shampoo and sunscreen cosmetics.
  • Formaldehyde is also used to make numerous other chemicals, used in personal care products such as toothpaste. Many of these are polyfunctional alcohols such as pentaerythritol, which is used to make paints and explosives.
  • Resorcinol, a reddish brown, flaky material, and formaldehyde in a water solution. (Formaldehyde is a gas which in water solution is called “formalin”.) Complete reaction of resorcinol with formaldehyde yields a resinous, stable solid (i.e., the fully set adhesive).
  • Resorcinol adhesives provide waterproof bonds that resist attack from weather and chemical reagents, and that are impervious to and insects. They are one of the few adhesives that can offer this performance when cured at room or intermediate temperatures.
  • Hydroxymethylated resorcinol (HMR), is a dilute, alkaline mixture of resorcinol and formaldehyde which continues to react. It forms a
    resorcinol-formaldehyde polymer in time but provides a coupling action between the wood and other resins that a common resorcinol-formaldehyde adhesive.
  • Alkaline hydrolysis of protein-rich fractions from soybeans provides a material that, when combined with phenol-resorcinol -formaldehyde resins, forms a strong gel within seconds and that further polymerizes at room temperature to provide bonds with the strength and durability required for use in structural lumber.
  • Resorcinol-formaldehyde resins are useful because they cure at room temperature, but are very expensive. The coreactant or combination of coreactants used with formaldehyde is selected depending on the costs, production conditions, and expected performance of the product.
  • Resorcinol, or 1, 3 dihydroxybenzene, is a common chemical intermediate that finds utility in applications ranging from wood glue resins to leather dyes to permanent hair coloring products. Resorcinol is also found in some, but not all, foam-in-place insulation formulations where it functions as a foam stabilizer, a formaldehyde absorbent and a cross linking agent that improves hydrolysis resistance of foams.
  • Resorcinol is also an ingredient of wood glues used in the furniture industry. These glues, known as resorcinol formaldehyde adhesives, have a dark, reddish-brown color and are known for their propensity to stain light wood with a dark, reddish glue line.
