Functional and aesthetic, bakelite is the ideal material for electrical engineering.
Developed at the beginning of the 20th century by the Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland - from whom the term derives its name - bakelite is known for its heat-resistant properties, as well as its stability and high electrical insulation. Until the 1960s, bakelite participated in the elaboration and development of many technical innovations - such as the telephone and radio. For financial reasons, however, bakelite was gradually replaced by thermoplastic, which was less dense but also of a less comparable quality.
Today, in order to offer a quality alternative to thermoplastics, some factories located on the European continent are relaunching the production of bakelite, using traditional moulds and tools.
