Glass Epoxy Laminate - G10
G10 Glass Epoxy Laminate Sheet, Rod, Film & Tube
Glass Expoxy Laminate - G10 is composed of a woven glass fabric combined with a halogen-free epoxy resin system. The product also offers superior physical properties and excellent electrical characteristics that are maintained in high-humidity conditions. In addition, it is not flame retardant and meets NEMA G-10 requirements. In addition to carrying true G10, Nationwide Plastics maintains a large inventory of FR-4, which is a common alternative to G10. FR-4 is a less expensive option than G10 while also being flame retardant.
Designed to withstand absolute zero temperatures up to 285 degrees Fahrenheit , the product is manufactured to the NIST G-10CR process specification for materials used in deep space and cryogenic applications. NP500CR complies with the requirements of MIL-I-24768/2. We have G10 Glass Epoxy Laminate available in sheet, rod, film, and tube for all applications.
Industry Trade names: G-5, G-7, G-9, G-10, G-11, FR-4
The most commonly used NEMA thermoset laminate grades are as follows:
- G-10 / FR-4 (Glass-Cloth Reinforced Epoxy) . G-11 / FR-5 (like G-10 but higher temp)
- G-5 / G-9 (Glass-Cloth Reinforced Melamine) . G-7 (Glass Cloth Reinforced Silicone)
