Urea Formaldehyde Concentrate(UFC-85)

Technical specification : COA MSDS-REACH

UFC-85 - Urea-formaldehyde concentrate is a clear, viscous liquid consisting of formaldehyde, urea, and a small amount of water. It provides the highest concentration of urea formaldehyde commercially available in an easy-to-use form in several industries.
It is an intermediate chemical used for many other derivatives based on Urea Formaldehyde solution. It is also known as TMU (Tetra Methylol Urea) and Formurea. Its long strong time, high solid content, proper fluidity, low water content and clearness, makes it an excellent intermediate compound for chemical/industrial purposes.
Major Application Areas
UFC can be used in most applications where Urea and Formaldehyde are required ingredients.
  • As precursor, conditioner/anticaking agent for urea fertilizer
  • Urea formaldehyde liquid resins
  • UF powdered resins
  • UF molding compound materials
  • Permanent press resins for Textiles
  • Protective coatings formulations from Alkyd resins
