phenolic or melaminic heat cured/heat curing resin/rosin
Explanation: I know about "heat curing" from dentistry (I don't know what your text is about), so I can tell you the terminology used in this field. "Rosin" is little used but you still see it sometimes. Also, I agree w. Bruno that "resin" should be singular in English (the "or" in Italian needs the plural "resine", but the English does not).
The links below are just a couple of examples from the hundreds of hits I got.
From a further web search it appears that melaminic is not used so much as melamine
Explanation: I have found dozens of references to phenolic resins and melamine resins, which are thermosetting.
They are two different types of thermosetting resin.
I must admit I'm not quite sure why my friend Floriana (for whom I have the greatest respect, so I'm truly puzzled here) is saying I should not be using the plural in English.
A corrected suggestion is "thermosetting phenolic and melamine resins"
These are some of the references I did find:
