Micarta Grade
Phenolic cotton materials are the workhorse grades for general mechanical applications
They are strong and tough with very good wear resistance and they are easy to machine into finished components
They are available with cotton fabric reinforcements ranging from fine weave to coarse
In general, the medium to coarse weave grades are used for larger and more rugged components requiring good all round strength and toughness
The finer are chosen for their superior finish, higher dimensional stability, and improved strength in thin sections
All grades are lightweight (about half the weight of aluminum)
Will not soften appreciably under the reapplication of heat
Dense and structurally strong
Resistant to moisture
Good electrical insulators
None available
