Further to the Open Meeting on modified phenolic resins hosted by the European Phenolic Resins Association (EPRA) in mid-October, two companies, Fenolit d.d and Uralchimplast, have declared the intention of moving towards the formation of a REACH Consortium to cover the following two product types:
- Formaldehyde, reaction products with cashew, nutshell liquid and phenol (CAS 67700-42-9)
- Formaldehyde, reaction products with cashew, nutshell liquid (CAS No. 68583-07-3)
Other parties with interests in this area of chemistry are invited to make contact with a view to cooperating on the formation of an appropriate REACH consortium to coordinate the information required to cover their obligations under the legislation.
For more information on possible cooperation, companies are advised to contact:
