(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.
