Laminated thermoset products consist essentially of fibrous sheet materials such as cellulose paper, cotton fabric, glass fabric etc. which are impregnated or coated with a thermosetting resin binder and consolidated under high temperature and pressure into hard, solid products of high mechanic strength.
With a combination of thermal stability, performance, and chemical resistance, thermoset plastics are extensively used in a wide variety of industries—from the manufacturing of electrical components and durable manufactured goods to the aerospace industry, heavy duty construction equipment, the energy sector—including oil, gas, and solar—and automotive manufacturing. Common products and applications that are made from thermoset plastics include construction equipment panels, electrical housings and components, insulators, cell tower tops, heat shields, circuit breakers, motor components, and disc brake pistons. In short, thermosets and their composites can be found in all markets and sectors.
Mechanical applications for thermoset laminates benefit from properties such as dimensional stability, rigidity, resistance to elevated temperatures, a high strength to weight ratio, and moisture resistance. Thermoset laminates have superior electrical properties, high electrical strength and excellent electrical insulation resistance. The degree of electrical resistance is dependent on the combination of material used.
Thermoset materials conform to NEMA and MIL-SPEC MIL-1-24768.
