Arboron® is composed of papers impregnated with melamine and phenolic thermosetting resins, consolidated under high pressure and temperature into dense, uniform sheets with good electrical and mechanical properties. The melamine surface of Arboron® provides excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. Its very high strength-to-weight ratio (one half the weight of aluminum) and relative ease of fabrication (carbide tipped tools) make Arboron® your first choice for new designs.
EPG® is a paper-based, solid phenolic laminate impregnated with phenolic thermosetting resins, consolidated under high pressure and temperature into dense, uniform sheets with good electrical and mechanical properties.
