Fiberglass Reinforced Flat Sheet Laminate
Röchling Glastic laminates offer a superior combination of electrical and mechanical properties such as dielectric strength, flame resistance, arc and track resistance, high-flexural strength and high-impact strength.
These laminated composite sheets are fiberglass-reinforced thermoset polyester. They will not melt under heat and have excellent overall electrical properties. All grades are UL® recognized.
Our fiberglass laminates also have superior consistency in thickness, punchability and property control. Add a high degree of quality and cost-effectiveness, and it is no wonder that Röchling Glastic laminates have helped make us a leader in composite materials.
All Röchling Glastic electrical insulating laminates have inherently good dielectrics. They are engineered to maximize the specific properties required for a wide range of electrical applications.
Grades 1580 and UTR are UL-rated V-0. Grade UTR is a halogen-free system that generates very low smoke and smoke toxicity in a fire situation.
Our high-impact fiberglass-reinforced polyester laminates won’t shatter and provide structural support as they insulate. Flexible laminates are available for applications that require a minimum bend radius of 0.75″ diameter at 1/32″ thickness.
Röchling Glastic laminates offer excellent property retention and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures. These laminates have UL temperature index ratings from 120°C to 210°C electrical, and from 130°C to 210°C mechanical.
Ease of Fabrication
These laminated composite materials are easily fabricated with standard metalworking equipment. They can be punched, drilled, machined, sheared and sanded. Grade UTR is well known for its ease of fabrication in high-speed machining centers. Grade 1580 punches cleanly and quickly.
In addition to significant property benefits, these fiberglass reinforced plastic laminates offer cost effectiveness over most high-pressure laminates. They outperform the phenolic grades and can often replace the more exotic epoxies and silicones at a considerable cost savings.
Röchling Glastic laminates are available in the following sizes: 49-3/8″ x 96″, 36″ x 72″, and 48″ x 60″ in thicknesses from 1/32″ to 2″ and .8mm to 60mm. Unlimited lengths are available in 4′ widths from 3/32" to 3/8".
