GPO (Glass Polyester) is highly valuable in applications where stable temperatures, tracking resistance and low moisture GPOabsorption are essential. The reinforcement of this laminate is fiberglass bonded with thermosetting, temperature-stable polyester resins. This lamination retains the best electrical and physical properties of both fiberglass and the polyester resins. It makes an excellent insulating material with high heat and arc resistance properties. It also has great flexural, impact, and tensile strength, yet is easily fabricated.

GPO-2 is a flame resistant fiberglass-reinforced laminate that exhibits high strength. It is easily fabricated and cost effective. GPO-2 is a good choice for use with terminal boards and control panels.
GPO-3 is a mineral filled, continuous fiberglass reinforced thermoset unsaturated polyester material. It is high strength, flame resistance, and low smoke generation makes the GPO-3 the industry standard for flame and arc resistant electrical insulation, and it used frequently in the transportation industry – where smoke generation and toxicity are a prime concern. GPO-3 is a good choice for use in switch gears and control panels.
GPO Angles & Channels are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. They perform well in electrical applications that require high arc and carbon track resistance as well as flame resistance, physical strength, and moderate heat resistance.
