Unfortunately, his original formula has long since been lost. "Bakelite" and "Parkesine" are both synthetic resins named after their inventors.And so "Faturan", named after its original inventor, became a brand of cast thermosetting phenol formaldehyde resin, similar to Bakelite and Catalin, manufactured by Traun & Son of Hamburg.  developed in the early 20th century, and produced until the 1940s.
