13 January 2006

Norplex-Micarta have release a new composite material grade that is claimed to provide superior mechanical strength at continuous temperatures of up to 210°C, appropriate for uses in oil & gas, power generation and aerospace applications.

The material, NP571HT is manufactured from multiple plies of woven fiberglass, saturated with epoxy resin and compressed under heat and pressure. In addition to superior strength, NP571HT is also claimed to provide excellent machinability, outstanding dimensional stability, and superior creep resistance.
