Thermoset Composites Handle Heavy Load-Bearing Applications.

16 July 2009

Designed for load-bearing applications in ships, metal-rolling mills, and off-road construction equipment, Norplex-Micarta BR60 and BR70 laminates are intended to perform under continuous water exposure without losing strength.

They consist of multiple plies of heavy-weight canvas cloth saturated with a phenolic resin system, modified disulfide, which provides internal lubrication to reduce frictional heat generation and wear of metal shafts on bearing. These composites are specifically designed for heavy load-bearing applications in ships, metal-rolling mills, and off-road construction equipment.
