COMPOSITE PHENOLICS AND EPOXY MATERIALS
Phenolics and epoxies, also known as "composites," are made from a variety of base materials including fiberglass or synthetic fibers, as well as natural fiber reinforcements that are impregnated with phenolic or epoxy resins. They are capable of resisting degradation in aggressive environments where other materials may fail. Additionally, these resins provide high tensile, bending, and compression strength, making them suitable for applications requiring durability and resistance.
One of the most notable features of these phenolic and epoxy composites is their ability to provide efficient thermal and electrical insulation. This makes them ideal for use in a variety of electrical applications, including insulators, switches, and other electronic components.
Additionally, these materials are commonly used in the manufacture of tools for soldering electronic boards or PCBs. Their resistance to high temperatures and thermal fluctuations, along with their dimensional stability, makes them especially suitable for this application.
Another important feature of these composites is their conductivity and antistatic properties. Some of these materials are designed to be conductive or to dissipate electrostatic charges, making them suitable for use in environments where ESD protection is essential.
