Phenolic Fabric Laminates

These laminates are produced by impregnating cotton fabric with Phenolic resin and then pressing these prepegs under high pressure and controlled temperature. By choosing different grades (coarse/ medium/ fine wave) of Fabric and modifying phenolic resin, laminates of various grades and specifications are produced. If required, lubricants are added in the resin system to achieve better wear resistance. Cotton fabrics are scoured or bleached to improve electrical insulation and water resistance properties along with superior surface finish of the machined component.

These materials find numerous usages in mechanical applications like gears, pulleys, guides etc. and as bearing materials. These are also used where electrical insulation is required with structural / mechanical strengths.
