PHENOLIC LINEN (GRADE LE)

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply distributor Phenolic Canvas Grade LE sheet, rod and tube.

 

Phenolics are thermoset resins formed by the polymerization of phenol and formaldehyde,

which can then be impregnated with cotton canvas or linen, paper, or glass cloth materials to

form industrial laminates. Overall, industrial laminates are dense, strong and durable, moisture

resistant, lightweight, and will not soften when heat is reapplied. Typically they have high mechanical and insulating properties.

 

Phenolic Grade L Laminate Sheet is a fine weave cotton fabric reinforcement in a phenolic

resin binder. The natural color is tan/brown. This grade has good mechanical properties, and

its fine weave allows more better machinability, which allows detailed and intricate machining

to be possible. It has better moisture resistance than C and CE grades. The "LE" grade has

better electrical properties than the "L" grade. Linen-based phenolics are available in a variety

of sheet, rod, and tube sizes. This product is also known Linen Phenolic, Micarta L, and

Bakelite. Garolite

 

Note: black color and other thicknesses are available

 

Better moisture resistance than phenolic canvas grades.

Meets Mil-I-24768/13, LP 509, & MIL P 15035, Type FBE

For electrical applications, use Grade LE, not Grade L

For mechanical applications such as fine gears, use Grade L, not Grade LE.
