Advantages and Uses of Phenolex

Industrial Laminated Plastics like Phenolex have a unique combination of tensile and compressive strength, temperature resistance and electrical resistance. Unlike many thermoplastics, they are rigid and can be machined into strong, permanent parts.

Depending to some extent on the specific grade which is used, Phenolex has these characteristics:

  • Excellent Insulating Materials
  • Can withstand more heat than thermoplastics
  • Resistant to most chemicals and solvents
  • Easily machined
  • Good moisture resistance
  • Dimensional stability
  • Wear resistant
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Excellent flammability resistance
  • High Flexural and Compressive strength
  • Good Arc Resistance
  • Self-extinguishing (G-10 & G-11)

Typical Applications:

  • Gears
  • Bearings
  • Bearing Retainers
  • Wear strips
  • Textile Shuttles
  • Thrust Washers
  • Gaskets and Seals
  • Pulleys
  • Sheaves
  • Washers
  • Terminal Boards
