Teflon® fluropolymer is a family of plastics used in a wide range of industrial applications from electrical insulation to moldings and non-stick coatings. Products made with fluoroplastic resins have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion and stress cracking. It is these properties of Teflon® which make it the preferred solution for a host of industrial applications and different processing techniques. Available in film, tube, rod, coatings and powder.

Phenolic sheet is a hard dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper, cotton or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) occurs and transforms the layers into a high pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic. Available in sheets - thicknesses from 0.005” to 2.0”

  • Paper Reinforced (MIL-I-24768 PBG)
  • Cotton Reinforced (MIL-I-24768 TYPE FBM & MIL-I-24768 TYPE FBG)
  • Linen Reinforced (MIL-I-24768 TYPE FBI & MIL-I-24768 TYPE FEI)
  • Nylon Reinforced (MIL-I-24768 TYPE NPG)
