Phenolics are the result of polymerization between layers of paper, canvas, linen, or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic thermosetting resins. These industrial laminates are a popular alternative to acrylic, because of its high resistance to flexing.

The base material (paper, linen cotton, cotton canvas, or glass cloth) and resin combination used is dependent upon the intended application of the finished product. Physical strength, resiliency, ease and versatility of fabrication, and excellent electrical properties make phenolics useful as support components in a wide range of mechanical and electrical applications.

N-1 Nylon Fabric / Phenolic (NP101): Specified for good impact strength and excellent electrical properties under high humidity conditions. Continuous operating temperature of 160°F.

Certifies to NEMA N-1 per MIL-I-24768/9 NPG.
