Phenolics

PHENOLICS

An industrial plastic that can be used for a variety of applications. This plastic is created from the mixture of different substances such as silicone, phenolic, melamine, and other materials through heat and pressure. Phenolics has phenomenal resistance to heat, stress, and certain corrosive chemicals. The most typical uses for Phenolics are for insolation and other electrical applications.

 

PROPERTIES

In addition to their machinability, phenolic also has low water absorption and dissipation factors, corrosion resistance to a number of chemicals, and superior electrical characteristics exhibited over a wide range of temperatures and humidity. These material qualities make phenolics ideal for use in a number of fabricated parts. By using special flame retardant epoxy resins, phenolic can be given superior flame resistance.

 

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

Denver Rubber Company offers a wide variety of phenolic sheet including XX, CE, LE, and G-10 in varying gauges and sheet sizes ranging from 36” x 48” to 48” x 120”. We also carry phenolic rod and tubing with varying diameters and wall thicknesses and in lengths up to 48”.
