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
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.
