tela bachelizzata

Bakelite or polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride was the first plastic made from synthetic components. It is a thermosetting phenol formaldehyde resin, formed from a condensation reaction of phenol with formaldehyde. It was developed by the Belgian-American chemist Leo Baekeland in Yonkers, New York, in 1907.

Bakelite cloth is a layered material made of pure cotton fabric and thermosetting phenolic resins. It has excellent electrical and mechanical resistance, remaining unchanged up to 120°C, as well as good chemical inertia. It cannot be fused and is insoluble in common solvents and reagents. It is, however, damaged by strong acids and caustic alcohols.

A particular quality of bakelite cloth is its self-lubricating capacity. Use in low thicknesses to make support washers for small electric motors, shim washers for motor shafts, and insulating parts subject to high bending stress (car horns).

Use greater thicknesses in making vanes for centrifugal vacuum pumps, gaskets for connecting metal pipes, sealing rings for pistons in oil-pressure systems, sliding guides, rolling mill floors.

The most prestigious use is for strong, self-lubricating, and, above all, silent gears.
