Phenolic Laminates | Arborite’s Premier Laminate Solutions
Phenolic Laminates are factory pressed, melamine-faced cellulose paper-based composite solids soaked with thermosetting resins. Here at Monoco we are extremely proud of our relationship with Arborite. One of Canada’s leading manufacturers of high-pressure laminates.
Monoco is a distributor of two Arborite products, Arboron and EPG. Both laminates meet Monoco’s focus on materials resistant to fire, high temperature, and mechanical and chemical wear. To contact us for a quote, email email@example.com or call (440) 632-5800.
Arboron® Phenolic Laminates Features and Benefits:
- High dimensional stability
- Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance
- High strength-to-weight ratio (one half the weight of aluminum)
- High dielectric strength
- Low moisture absorption
- Carbide blade and router fabrication
- Good electrical and mechanical properties
- Easy to fabricate
Dielectric Strength Material
A dielectric strength material needs to be a low conductor of electricity as well as a supporter of an electrostatic field without experiencing failure of its insulating properties.
Melamine and phenolic thermosetting resins supplement layers of paper under high pressure to form this laminate. The combination of high its specific strength, efficient, and advanced manufacturing allows for both practicality and longevity of results.
Arboron Phenolic Laminates are employed as electrical insulation sheets in power circulation operations where dielectric strength, chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and dimensional stability are needed.
Well known for its versatility, Arboron is the ideal material for numerous applications across multiple electrical and mechanical operations, most specifically, electrical control and test panels, transportation industry panels, and stage flooring. Its defining high dielectric strength, as well as its durability, are some of the factors behind its versatility for new design projects.
Arboron has been successfully used in a number of applications including:
- Electrical control and test panels
- Switchgear mounting
- Bus bar insulation
- Phase barriers
- Electrical enclosures
- Non-conductive workbenches
- Needle trade templates
- Die stock
- Transportation industry panels
- Conveyer applications
- Stage flooring
- Drill jigs and fixtures
Carbide-tipped tools stay sharper for longer and are some of the most critical factors in the simple, efficient production of this laminate.
