Bakelite

Bakelite

Bakelite is a versatile and strong plastic used in all kinds of applications. We are pleased to offer a wide variety of Bakelite materials; specifically Bakelite Rods and Bakelite sheets in a selection of thicknesses and sizes.

One of the early plastics, Bakelites have been used for everything from making telephones and appliances to, more recently, serving as an electrical insulation material and the manufacture of mechanical support parts. 

A synthetic plastic, Bakelite is made using thermosetting resins that are reinforced with either fabric or paper. It has reasonable resistance to heat (up to 125°C) and very high mechanical strength. This rigid plastic can be accurately cut to size and machined as needed. 

Browsing our Bakelite Range is simple. On the left (or above on mobile) you'll have the option to refine this long list of sizes to show only our Bakelite Rods or Bakelite sheets. We really suggest doing this first if you can as it will give you a far more relevant selection. Once done, there's a number of filters available that can help narrow down your search (including sheet size and thickness for the sheets and diameter or length for the rods).

Clicking on any of the sizes will take you through to the product page for that particular size & style of Bakelite. This will also give you a more detailed description of the product, a list of some of the more popular applications we see for it and technical specifications.

Of course, if you can't find the size you require, have any questions at all, or require custom-fabricated Bakelite parts please do contact us. We'll try and assist as best we can.
