Phenolic Lamp Sockets

Phenolic lamp sockets are made of phenolic resin.  This plastic material is known for its resistance to heat, strength, and non-conductive characteristics.  In the early days of lamp sockets, a material called Bakelite was used to manufacture these sockets.  In fact, Bakelite was the name of those light sockets.  Because of some toxic elements bakelite possess, it is no longer used.
