Redco™ Industrial Laminate Composites exhibit mechanical properties far beyond that of many conventional industrial plastics. Redco™ Laminates are much lighter than steel, cost effective, easily machined, have good dimensional stability, excellent properties and do not contain harmful or toxic materials.

Industrial Laminates Varieties Available:

  • Redco™ Phenolic Laminates
  • Redco™ Epoxy Laminates
  • Redco™ Melamine Laminates
  • Redco™ Silicon Laminates
  • Redco™ Polyester Laminates

 

Redco™ Phenolic

Phenolic resin, when combined with cotton fabric, offers excellent strength and rigidity, good insulative qualities, and optimum machinability. These qualities make our standard “NEMA CE” grade ideally suited for high load and high impact applications.For applications that require a lower coefficient of friction than our standard CE grade can provide, consider our graphite filled, GRADE 400 material.

With the addition of a solid lubricant, the amount of lubrication required and/or the regular maintenance schedule may be reduced. While the addition of a solid lubricant reduces the insulative properties of the Grade 400 material, it retains all the mechanical strength of NEMA CE plus has the added advantage of a lower coefficient of friction.

  • High degree of resistance to deforming under load
