Phenolic Laminates (Bakelite)-Hylam

Phenolic Laminates (Bakelite)-Hylam

Description

Laminate manufactured from extra fine and super extra fine cotton mesh impregnated with a Phenolic resin binder. It is characterized by its very great mechanical strength and low specific gravity. Resilient against a wide variety of chemical agents, it is highly resistant to wear and due to its finer surface, has better Machineability than paper grades. Phenolic laminates are mainly used in industrial applications in the electronics, power generation and aero-space industries.

Mechanical grades of fabric reinforced Phenolics rod and sheets are available ready stock.

Fabric Based Industrial Laminates

F1 grade material is manufactured from fine weave scoured cotton fabric, this has got good electrical and mechanical properties and can be machined to fine finish. This grade is suitable for small components such as instrument gears as well as intricate machined parts.

F2 grade material is manufactured from medium weave cotton fabric, the material of this grade has superior machining and punching properties and better resistance to chemicals, Recommended for small parts.

F3 grade material is manufactured from coarse weave, grey cotton fabric, the material of this grade is strong and tough with good machining properties, it is suitable for heave duty gears and applications requiring high impact strength.

F4 grade material is manufactured from medium weave fabric with very good die electrical properties and medium mechanical strength, some of the applications of the material is armature wedges, generators slot wedges insulation and bus bar support etc.
