Phenolic resin


Recommended Posts

Hello pyros

What is the difference between a thermoset and thermoplastic phenolic resin. Which is applicable for the use of pyrotechnics. i assume thermoplastic because ive seen that term here in forum. I will use phenolic resin as alternative for red gum in star composition.

also, can i use phenolic resin as a binder and drop the dextrin? In terms of fuel value, i heard that phenolic resin has a higher fuel value than red gum.
