Canvas Bakelite Natural

Canvas Bakelite Natural is an industrial laminate material combining cotton cloth and phenolic resin, creating a high load characteristic with good impact resistance. It is fully machinable and can be punched at room temperature up to 1.6mm thick.

Suitable for both electrical insulating and mechanical applications and is available in both natural and graphite impregnated sheets, rods and tubes. It is also an ideal material for silent gears, rollers, scrapers and bushes.
