NEMA grades G10 and FR4 Glass Cloth Reinforced Epoxy - natural color is typically yellowish to light green. The most versatile all-around laminate grades are continuous glass woven fabric impregnated with an epoxy resin binder. Epoxy resins are among the most versatile and widely used plastics in the electronics field, primarily because water absorption is virtually none, rendering it an outstanding insulator. Beyond its electrical insulating properties, epoxy resins exhibit superior adhesive properties and great dimensional stability - shrinkage is usually less than 1 percent. G10 andFR4 have extremely high mechanical strength, good dielectric loss properties, both wet and dry. The main difference between NEMA Grades G10 and FR4 is that FR4 is a fire retardant grade of G10. Therefore, FR4 may be substituted where G10 is called out except in applications where halogens are not desired. G10 can never be substituted where FR4 is called for.
G10 certifies to Mil-I-24768/2 GEE
FR4 certifies to Mil-I-24768/27 GEE-F
NEMA grades G11 and FR5 Glass Cloth Reinforced Epoxy - natural color is typically yellow green to amber. This grade is similar to G10 & FR4 with the addition of a higher operating temperature and some improved mechanical strength at elevated temperatures. The main difference between NEMA Grades G11 and FR5 is that FR5 is a fire retardant grade of G11. Therefore, FR5 may be substituted where G11 is called out except in applications where halogens are not desired. G11 can never be substituted where FR5 is called for G11.
G11 certifies to Mil-I-24768/3 GEB
FR4 certifies to Mil-I-24768/28 GEB-F
Epoxyglas HT ESD - Laminate sheet comprised of an epoxy resin binder and a woven glass substrate. Surface properties are Electro Static Dissipative on one or two sides. Static dissipative properties are embedded in surface layers making this ideally suited as test fixture material for printed circuit boards. Examples: solder pallets, Assembly fixtures, automated test equipment, ATE fixtures, and electronic assembly workstation surfaces.
Epoxyglas Cowskin - Laminate Sheet is a glass fabric reinforcement in an epoxy resin binder. It has tough outer skins that improve the surface wear characteristics and prolong life of carrier sheets. The natural color is grey/green. It maintains superior mechanical strength in both dry and humid conditions
