Characteristics

Micarta® is a line of premium industrial laminates that includes canvas, linen, paper and nylon-reinforced phenolic sheets.

Canvas reinforced phenolic has good mechanical and impact strength with a continuous operating temperature of 250 degrees F.

Linen reinforced phenolic has good mechanical and electrical strength and a continuous operating temperature of 250 degrees F. It is recommended for intricate, high-strength parts.

Paper reinforced phenolic has high impact resistance and excellent tensile, compressive and flexural strength. Nylon reinforced phenolic has superior electrical properties under humid conditions, is fungus-resistant and has a continuous operating temperature of 160 degrees F.

Applications

  • Electrical insulators
  • Printed circuit board substrates
  • Structural components
