Phenolic tubes are a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to fiber or fabric and apply a synthetic resin. Phenolics are the one of the oldest, best-known general purpose thermoset resin. Each grade is lightweight, about half the weight of aluminum, and have an unusual combination of properties. Some of the uses of phenolic material include but are not limited to bearings, gears, gaskets, washers, transformers, and various machining components.
- Good acid resistance
- Low voltage
- Low frequency electrical performance
- Easily machined
- Good mechanical strength
CE Phenolic (Canvas Electrical Grade) tubes are typically rolled over a mandrel to produce custom-wall thicknesses. These Phenolic Tubes exhibit good mechanical and impact strength with contiunuous operating temperature of 250°F. CE Canvas Phenolic is an excellent insulator and is used in various electrical and mechanical applications.
Phenolic CE can be used in explosion-proof environments. This material is commonly used to make gears, pulleys, rollers, and guides, as well as electrically insulated parts such as control boards.
