Press Release: Further Open Meetings planned on modified phenolic resins – Chemical Watch

Following the Open Meeting on modified phenolic resins hosted by the European Phenolic Resins Association (EPRA) in mid-October, the Association has identified two additional resin chemistries requiring active management in order to meet their REACH requirements. Accordingly, back-to-back meetings are proposed to explore the possibilities for consortium formation in the following areas:

  • A Substituted Phenolic Resins (SPR) consortium which is proposed to cover cresol modified resins (CAS Nos. 9039-25-2 & 41701-84-2) together with alkyl phenolic resins, such as para-tertiary butyl phenol modified resins (CAS No. 162393-06-8) and nonyl phenol modified resins (CAS No. 31605-35-3)
  • An Alcohol-modified Phenolic Resins (APR) consortium which is proposed to cover, at a minimum, 1-butanol modified phenolic resins (CAS No. 96446-41-2) and methanol modified resins

The meetings are scheduled in London on Tuesday 13th January 2009.
