Advantages of phenolic blocks

One of the standout features of Walraven Phenolic Blocks is their incredible strength-to-weight ratio.  Phenolic blocks have now replaced wooden blocks.  This is because they had poorer thermal properties, increased risk of condensation forming on wood blocks, and difficulty in maintaining effective vapour barriers.  They are up to five times stronger than.  This makes them an ideal choice for supporting heavy loads in construction and industrial applications. This immense strength not only enhances safety but also reduces the need for frequent replacements, resulting in cost savings over time.  They are easy to work with, thanks to their lightweight nature and consistent dimensions.  Also, they are customizable to meet specific project requirements.

Resistance to Environmental Factors

Phenolic blocks have a foil covering applied at the factory.  This acts as a highly effective barrier against the harshest environmental conditions.   They are impervious to moisture, chemicals, and extreme temperatures, ensuring their longevity in diverse settings. This resistance makes them a top choice for projects where traditional materials might degrade or weaken over time.
