Urea Formaldehyde - UF Urea Cellulose Filled

Advantages

Significantly higher tensile strength, flexural modulus and HDT, lower water absorption and mould shrinkage and higher surface hardness, elongation at break and volume resistance compared with urea formaldehyde foam.

Disadvantages

Lower maximum operating temperature, worse dielectric constant, tracking resistance and dimensional stability compared with urea formaldehyde foam.
