Phenolic is often used to refer to any layered plastic. Actually, phenolic is a very specific, resin-based material. It is no longer widely used for signage in General Manufacturing. Modern acrylic based plastics have taken over that market. Almost always, if a specification calls out Phenolic they are really needing Plastic. Consult your Engineer or contact us if you are not sure.

True Phenolic is still used in some very specific applications. See our chart below.

Do you need a true, resin-based phenolic? We provide phenolic labels, nameplates and tags made from Norplex brand Phenolic. Other trade names are Micarta and Traffolite. Phenolic is similar to Bakelite. It is very rigid, has sharp edges and is not UV stable.
