Urea formaldehyde (UF), chemically known as urea methanol, is a chemical composition of urea and formaldehyde and is set to witness high surge in demand in next couple of years primarily due to its high tensile strength, flexural modulus and scratch resistant properties that makes it suitable for being used as adhesives in various end–use industries. The urea formaldehyde market is a double-digit billion dollar industry and is expected to grow at a very impressive rate during the forecast period. The UF resins are economically cost-effective in nature than other resins such as phenol-formaldehyde resins, thus making it more popular among industries such as textiles, papers, foundry, etc.
