What is machined G10?
G-10 (also known as phenolic and epoxy-grade industrial laminate) is a high-pressure fiberglass laminate, a type of composite material with a low coefficient of thermal expansion. It is a flame resistant composite material used by many aerospace companies. It is also a strong material that does not absorb water which makes it an excellent insulator and really useful for electronics applications.
Is G10 stronger than aluminum?
G10 and aluminum are comparable in strength and durability. G-10 is a little lighter and more resistant to temperature change. Aluminum is quite a bit more rigid and is more resistant to impact.
What is G10 used for?
G10 is a fiberglass material that is most often used in the making of circuit boards. It is more stable and resistant to corrosion due to not being a metal. It is generally used in the medical, aerospace, and marine industries.
What is the difference between Garolite and phenolic?
They are both phenolic laminates. However, Garolite is a brand name for G10, which is a fiberglass laminate. Other phenolics are made with paper, linen or other woven fabrics.
