XX paper phenolic offers superior wear resistance and excellent mechanical strength in many applications. Atlas Fibre is an original manufacturer of this material, plus many other phenolic thermoset solutions. Discover more about our grade XX properties, benefits, and common uses.

What Is XX Paper-Based Phenolic?

XX paper-based phenolic is a thermoset plastic composite formed by fusing layers of paper impregnated with phenolic resin. The manufacturing process uses pressure and heat to create polymerization that transforms the layers into a durable, set product.

Properties* of phenolic XX include:

  • Maximum temperature: 140° Celsius (284° Fahrenheit)
  • Flammability rating: 94HB
  • M-scale hardness: 120
  • Specific gravity: 1.35
  • Water absorption — 24 hours: 2.00
  • Bond strength: 1,500 pounds per square inch (psi) [10 megapascals (MPa)]
  • Compressive strength: 17,000 psi (117 MPa)
  • Flexural strength – LW -A 0.125″: 34,000 psi (234 MPa)
  • Izod impact strength at 49°C – LW: 0.80
  • Shear strength: 11,500 psi (79 MPa)
  • Tensile strength: 35,000 psi (241 MPa)
