Phenolic resin, when combined with cotton fabric, offers excellent strength and rigidity, good insulative qualities, and optimum machinability. These qualities make our standard “NEMA CE” grade ideally suited for high load and high impact applications.For applications that require a lower coefficient of friction than our standard CE grade can provide, consider our graphite filled, GRADE 400 material.
With the addition of a solid lubricant, the amount of lubrication required and/or the regular maintenance schedule may be reduced. While the addition of a solid lubricant reduces the insulative properties of the Grade 400 material, it retains all the mechanical strength of NEMA CE plus has the added advantage of a lower coefficient of friction.
- High degree of resistance to deforming under load
- Can withstand up to 149°C / 300°F continuously
- One of the hardest plastics available
- Cross-linked phenolics are very resistant to compressive loads
