Fiber Reinforced plastics are rigid sheets laminated using thermosetting (epoxy) resins and fiberglass fabric. Characterized by high dielectric strength, excellent mechanical and thermal properties and good flexural strength. Have good machinablity and punchability Ideally suited for wedging applications, as interlayer insulation in electromagnets, as terminal plates & separators in switchgears.
Epoxy bonded laminates are manufactured with thermosetting resins and specially treated fiberglass cloth, suited for use at elevated temperatures.
Epoxy sheets are laminated under controlled heat and specified hydraulic pressure to produce a compact laminate, characterized by high dielectric strength, excellent mechanical and thermal properties and good flexural strength.
