(National Electrical Manufacturers Association)

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) designated laminates are materials comprised of different resin systems incorporating woven glass, non-woven and some none at all. Each laminate exhibits unique electrical, mechanical and chemical performance characteristics and have specific uses based on these criteria.

  • X = Paper Phenolic Resin – Mechanical Grade
  • XP = Paper Phenolic Resin – Mechanical Grade – Hot Punch-able Grade
  • XPC = Paper Phenolic Resin – Mechanical Grade – Cold Punch-able Grade
  • XX = Paper Phenolic – General Purpose Grade
  • XXP = Paper Phenolic Resin – Mechanical Grade – Hot Punch-able
  • XXX = Paper Phenolic Resin – Electrical Grade
  • FR-1 = Fire Retardant – Paper Phenolic – Mechanical Grade – Hot Punch-able
  • FR-2 = Fire Retardant – Paper Phenolic – Electrical Grade – Cold Punch-able
  • FR-3 = Fire Retardant – Paper Epoxy – Electrical Grade
  • L = Cotton Phenolic Resin – Machine-able Grade
  • LE = Cotton Phenolic Resin – Electrical Grade
  • C = Cotton Phenolic Resin – Mechanical Grade
  • CE = Canvas Phenolic Resin – General Purpose Grade
  • FR-4, & FR-5 = Fire Retardant – Glass Epoxy Resin – Mechanical Grade
  • G-3 = Woven Glass – Phenolic Resin – General Purpose Grade
  • G-5 & G-9 = Woven Glass Melamine Resin – General Purpose Grade
  • G-7 = Woven Glass Silicone Resin – General Purpose Grade
  • G-10, & G-11 = Woven Glass – Epoxy Resin – Electrical Grade
  • GPO-1 = Random Weave Glass – Polyester Resin – General Purpose Grade
  • GPO-2 & 3 = Random Weave Glass – Polyester – General Purpose Grade

These laminates being machined into insulators, diaphragms, gaskets, shims, spacer etc., have a variety of uses in the Aerospace, Automotive, Industrial, Electrical and Petroleum Industries.
