PHENOLIC GRADES 

 

Micarta® is a brand name for Phenolic composites such as linen (L or LE), canvas (C or CE, paper (X, XX or XXX), fiberglass (G3, G5, G7, G9, G10, G11), carbon fiber or other fabric in a thermoset plastic resin system. It was originally used in electrical and decorative applications. Micarta® was developed by George Westinghouse at least as early as 1910 using phenolic resins invented by Leo Baekeland. These resins were used to impregnate paper and cotton fabric that were cured under pressure and high temperature to produce laminates. In later years this manufacturing method included the use of fiberglass fabric and other resin types were also used. Today, Micarta® high-pressure industrial laminates are produced with a wide variety of resins and fibers. The term has been used generically for most resin impregnated fibre phenolic compounds. Common uses of modern high-pressure laminates are as electrical insulators, printed circuit board substrates, steel mill wear pads, steel mill wear plates, steel mill components, military components, industrial gears and knife handles.

The Micarta® trademark is a registered trademark of Industrial Laminates / Norplex, Inc. (dba Norplex-Micarta).
