STANDARD DIMENSIONS:

  • Thickness:  1/8", 1/4", 3/8", & 1/2"
  • Width:  4' & 5'
  • Length:  8' & 12'

Note: #3316 Graphite Laminate panels are not available in the 1/8" thickness.

 

FABRICATION:

Laminate panels are fabricated by laying up epoxy impregnated woven Graphite or  fabricated Fiberglass fabric to the appropriate thickness.  Panels are then press cured, trimmed, and post cured.

Fabrication:

FINISH:

  • Peel ply on both faces

FEATURES:

  • High strength and stiffness
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Long term stability at ambient and high temperatures
  • Removable peel ply provides a bond ready surface for subsequent bonding
  • Typical delivery in 3-4 weeks
  • Laminates can be pre-cut and delivered in kits

 

APPLICATION

The composite tooling industry uses laminated panels for numerous applications, which require a thin, high strength reinforcement.  Due to the very low coefficient of thermal expansion, laminates are ideal for supports on bonding tools and master models used at high temperatures.

Other popular uses in the industry include eggcrate and truss reinforcements.
