One example of phenolic composite material is paper-based phenolic, available in two forms from Atlas Fibre. Learn more about paper phenolic's applications and benefits.
Phenolic material is produced through pressurizing, heating, and mixing layers of material like paper with phenolic resin, a combination of phenol and formaldehyde. The resulting composite material is durable, strong, and lightweight. Paper phenolic has good machining properties, dimensional stability, and insulating capabilities.
Several types of paper-based phenolic material are available. Depending on your applications, one form may perform better than others.
Atlas Fibre supplies XX and XXX paper phenolic laminate.
XX paper phenolic consists of a saturating kraft paper substrate and a phenolic resin binder. It’s a general-purpose phenolic composite material that has good electrical insulating and mechanical properties. It costs less than other types of phenolic laminates and is extremely versatile.
The features of XX paper phenolic are:
XXX-grade paper-based phenolic composite has even better machining capabilities and excellent electrical insulating properties. This material also performs well in environments with high humidity.
It consists of a high-alpha-saturating paper substrate and phenolic resin. XXX paper-based phenolic also has excellent dimensional stability.
The feature of XXX paper-based phenolic material include:
Why use paper phenolic instead of another material type? Some of its benefits include:
If paper phenolic is the right composite material for your project, Atlas Fibre can help you determine which grade is best for your requirements and help you choose a shape, dimensions, and thickness.
