Like canvas, the LE grade of linen is known for its mechanical properties. However, the finer weave of linen allows for the machining of more intricate details.
With excellent insulation properties, moisture resistance and good mechanical and electrical strength, linen is recommended for intricate, high-strength parts. Linen can withstand a continuous operating temperature of 250° F.
