NEMA Laminates

All Materials Are RoHS and DFARS Compliant

MSDS and Technical Data Sheets are available upon request.

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. I. G. Marston is experience in working with these and other non-metallic materials needed for specialty manufacturing, clean room environments, and that otherwise meet our customers’ specifications.
