Bakelite - one of the first widely produced synthetic materials in history, is commonly associated with retro design of switches and sockets found in homes from the 1930s. Less commonly known are the advantages of this material: resistance to high temperatures, good dielectric strength, low electrical conductivity. A series of benefits has secured its special place in the electrical industry.
Today, this material has been revived, and by combining retro designs with modern requirements, we can appreciate the range of new everyday Bakelites, which we warmly encourage you to explore!
