Phenolics & Industrial Laminates
Among the oldest plastics on the market, phenolics & industrial laminates are thermoset plastics, meaning they cannot be altered by heat. They are typically made from a combination of resins and fillers such as paper, linen and canvas, have good electrical and mechanical properties and are resistant to heat, flame and chemicals.
- Electric Insulators
- Thrust Bearings
- Terminal Blocks
- Insulating Washers
- Clutch Facings
- Motor Components
- Arc Barriers
- Switchboard Panels
- Circuit Breaker Parts
- Dimensionally stable - Many variations of the basic material.
- Part of a larger family of “Industrial Laminates” that include glass/melamine and glass/epoxy configurations. Melamines are the hardest laminates made and are known for their arc resistance (G-5, G-9). Epoxy is used for its excellent electrical and mechanical properties in both wet and dry conditions (G-9, G-10 and FR-4).
