Glass Phenolic/G-10

G-10 is an industrial laminate consisting of woven glass fabric laminated with epoxy resin. it is extremely high in mechanical strength, with excellent electrical properties and chemical resistance. These properties are maintained even under humid and moist conditions. G-10 is rated at 285°F continuous operating temperature. Because it is a thermoset no melting will occur with this grade.

Characteristics

  • High dielectric strength
  • Radiation resistant
  • High tensile strength
  • Low cold flow or creep
  • Chemically resistant
  • High flexural strength
  • Dimensional stability
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Low dissipation factor

Applications

  • electrical equipment
  • antenna insulators
  • test boards
  • end plates
  • solder frames
  • terminal boards
  • circuit board holders
  • underwater conditions
