CHEMISTRY OF UREA-FORMALDEHYDE RESIN FORMATION

Urea-formaldehyde resins are formed by the reaction of urea and formaldehyde. The overall reaction of urea with formaldehyde is quite complex and, although initially stud-ed early in this century, is not completely understood at the present time.The synthesis of a urea-formaldehyde resin takes place in two stages.
