PROPERTY COMPARISON

The following is a summary of Norplex-Micarta's grades of laminated composite materials cross referenced to standard NEMA grades, their reinforcement, resin system, colors available, their key features and the common forms under which they are marketed. Further information and specification qualifications for these materials can be found on the Technical Data Bulletins for the individual grades.
