Some names include Bakelite (developed by J.P. Baekeland [if I spelled his
name correctly] who modestly named it after himself) and
Phenol-formaldehyde resin among others.  It's the stuff that was used for
old fashioned black pot handles and telephone handsets from _many_ years
ago.  It is pretty resistant to heat but will eventually degrade after much
use.  I don't know how well it will stand up to the intended use.  This
might make an interesting experiment for someone.
