GEORGIA-PACIFIC CHEMICALS brings decades of experience and a portfolio of proven products to enhance your coatings, adhesive or ink program.

Our products provide formulation latitude as they are compatible with many types of polymers including epoxies, polyesters, vinyl, acrylics and alkyds while being soluble in a variety of solvents including alcohols and ketones. Products are also dilutable in aromatics. Recognized benefits of GP® phenolic resins include chemical resistance, electrical resistivity, corrosion resistance and excellent adhesion to metal. Films made of phenolic resins can be used in abrasion-resistant and thermal barrier films.

We know that every application and formulation is different. Our knowledge of these resins provides us the foundation to select or develop the product that will meet your specific need.

In order to bring our customers a range of technologies from which to choose, we are now the exclusive North American distributor of Curaphen products from UK manufacturer Bitrez Ltd. Bitrez holds the United Kingdom’s coveted Queens Award for Enterprise in Innovation. The Curaphen line includes products with extremely low monomer levels or the elimination of a particular monomer.
