Phenolic and Epoxy Rod - K-Mac Plastics
Phenolic Thermoset Plastic Laminate. Phenolics are a uniformly dense and structurally strong material that will not soften appreciably under the reapplication of heat. It is an extremely durable plastic that is lightweight and moisture resistant. Industrial laminates are thermoset resin impregnated reinforcing materials (paper, fabric, glass fabric, etc.) that are cured under heat and pressure to form solid shapes having high mechanical and electrical insulating properties. Laminates are available in sheet, rod, tube, and angle. Since laminates are comprised of a combination of materials, they are also referred to as composites.

Phenolic and Epoxy Rod - US Plastics
Phenolic and epoxy laminates are a hard dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper, fabric, or glass fiber with a phenolic or epoxy resin. GRADE XX - Copper color, paper base phenolic laminate with good mechanical properties, high dielectrical strength and good resistance to moisture. Max. temp. 266° F. GRADE CE - Brown color, canvas base phenolic laminate having high impact strength for mechanical applications. Max. temp. 257° F. GRADE LE - Brown color, fine weave cotton fabric base, phenolic laminate. Low moisture, pick-up. Can be machined to very close tolerances. Good mechanical properties combined with excellent electrical properties. Max. temp. 257° F. GRADE G-10 - Light green color, continuous woven glass fabric laminated with an epoxy resin. Extremely high in mechanical strength, low water absorption and superior electrical characteristics. Max. temp. 284° F. Sold in approximate standard 4' lengths only Some lengths may be less or more than 4' as material doesn't allow for perfect cut lengths.
