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.
