Stamped Parts Using NEMA Grade Laminates

At New Process Fibre NEMA Grade Laminates are stamped into components ranging from 0.005″ to 0.250″ in thickness and are used in the Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Industrial, Marine, Petroleum and Power Distribution Industries.

NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) designated laminates are unclad materials comprised of different resin systems, such as Epoxy, Phenolic, Silicone, Melamine and Polyester, incorporating woven glass weave, non-woven and some none at all. Each laminate exhibits unique electrical, mechanical and chemical performance characteristics and have specific uses based on these criteria.

At New Process Fibre these laminates are stamped into components ranging from 0.005″ to 0.250″ in thickness and are used in the Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Industrial, Marine, Petroleum and Power Distribution Industries.
