The so called Art Deco “plastic” radios are generally made of BakeliteCatalin or Plaskon.

All these plastics were used in radios for its electrical non conductivity and heat resistance properties.

The first plastic radios were made exclusively of Bakelite (Most of them in dark color due to Bakelite limitations.)


Catalin was introduced in the 30’s and any color became possible.

Bright and colorful radios were born.
