Asylum Research, a premier manufacturer of atomic force microscopes (AFMs)

Phenolic - PF Phenol
Formaldehyde Foam

Advantages

Very low density, linear expansion and


high oxygen index compared with other
phenolics.

Disadvantages

Very low tensile strength, flexural


modulus, heat distortion temperature and
low maximum operating temperature
compared with other phenolics.
