GRADE DESCRIPTION

EL-45 Very fine weave cotton fabric bonded with a high temperature epoxy resin. Combines excellent mechanical strength and low moisture absorption. Machines well to close tolerance.

PL-40M Cotton fabric with a high temperature phenolic resin containing molybdenum disulfide for better wear performance. PL-40M works well in low duty applications for compressors and vacuum pumps. Applications include agricultural spreaders, liquid waste vacuum pumps and dairy pumps.

PL-60 Very fine weave bleached cotton fabric with a high temperature phenolic resin. This material offers a high degree of resin impregnation which provides excellent dimensional stability.

PL-60 is specifically recommended for rotor vanes used in air motors, starter motors and small air tools.

PL-62 Fine weave cotton phenolic. Designed for better machining characteristics than standard cotton phenolic material. Lower cost material to the bleached linen PL-60.

PL-62 is a cost effective alternative to PL-60. Black in color .. G-ll Woven glass fabric with epoxy resin. G-ll has good moisture and temperature resistance. Although slightly abrasive, with the proper amount of lubrication G-ll can perform well in high vacuum pumps.

PG-50 Graphite fibre fabric with a high temperature phenolic resin. It has excellent moisture resistance and physical properties. This material has gained acceptance as an asbestos replacement in high vacuum pumps.

EK-50 Aramid fibre composite fabric bonded with a high temperature epoxy resin. EK-50 has tremendous strength characteristics and excellent moisture resistance. This material performs well in lubricated air motors.

MK-50 Aramid fibre composite fabric with a melamine resin. MK-50 has excellent moisture resistance and chemical resistance while maintaining dimensional stability. Applications include rotor vanes for compressors and vacuum pumps for industrial processing and liquefied gas transfer.

PK-50N Aramid fibre composite fabric bonded with a high temperature phenolic resin. PK-50N has excellent mechanical strength at elevated temperatures in adverse environments. Applications include rotor vanes for vacuum pumps for the dairy, liquid waste, oil refining and mining industries.
