|Outstanding Electrical Insulation Capability for Low- and Medium-Voltage |
Our composites feature inherently good dielectric properties. Specific grades add flame resistance, arc/track resistance and high temperature resistance. This is why they are used as components in delicate electronic devices, as well as rugged parts in transformers and switchgear.
|High Mechanical Strength — Yet Lightweight |
Composite materials have a very high strength to weight ratio. They provide many of the structural characteristics of metal or wood, but weigh less. A broad selection of reinforcing materials, resins, and other raw materials allow us to optimize a composite design to meet customer requirements.
|Flame, Smoke and Toxicity |
Many of our FRP composites offer exceptional flame resistance. A wide selection of materials are available to meet class 1 fire rating standards. Certain grades of FRP composite materials generate very low smoke and smoke toxicity when exposed to fire.
|Heat Resistance |
Heat resistant grades of our engineered plastic composites offer property retention and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures.
|Abrasion and Impact Resistance |
Our reinforced engineered composites can withstand the effects of abrasion and impact better than most conventional materials such as hardwood and other thermoplastic or thermoset panels.
|Corrosion Resistance |
These reinforced materials are ideal for use where clean and attractive surfaces are desired and corrosion resistance is required.
|Ease of Fabrication |
Our channels, bars, rods and shapes can be fabricated using common tools and equipment. They can be punched, drilled, milled, sawed, sanded, sheared or routed.
|Cost Effective |
When compared to high-pressure laminates such as epoxy, melamine, silicone or mica, our engineered composites offer an exceptional value.
