Canvas Phenolic grade CE sheet is made of a cotton canvas cloth impregnated with a phenolic resin binder. Known primarily for its mechanical properties, Phenolic CE sheet is a hard, dense material.
More About Phenolic
Phenolic is created when weighted layers of cotton, paper or glass fabric mix are placed under heat and pressure and filled with synthetic resin. This creates an extremely durable and tough material that is exceptionally more lightweight than aluminum but offers many of the same benefits and applications.
Other combinations of fibers and resins are available as cellulose paper, cotton fabrics, synthetic yarn fabrics, glass fabrics or unwoven fabrics. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated phenolic plastic.
Benefits of Phenolic
Phenolic is a versatile building material that is incredibly light weight. With low moisture absorption and the ability to hold up in a wide range of temperatures combined with its corrosion resistance and machinable properties, phenolic is a great choice for a range of applications.
