A Guide to G10 Plastics

Composite materials have two main components: a matrix and a filler. They are used in various industries. First of all, strength and lightness are expected from such materials. According to their purpose, the composite materials may have some additional properties. The composite materials production is a promising area where improvements are constantly taking place and new products are emerging.

G-10 is a composite material made of epoxy and fiberglass. G-10 features high damage resistance, little moisture absorption capacity, as well as a high chemical resistance and electrical insulation. The ability to dissipate static electricity is enhanced in the innovative material ESD G-10 / FR4. The ESD component integrated directly into the fiberglass base of G-10 solves many application problems. This material is tough, it has a quite low coefficient of thermal expansion and outstanding electrical properties.

For what purposes would you need custom G10 orders? First of all, due to its properties, G-10, including G-10 / FR4 is used for equipment components that are sensitive to static electricity. For the first time, people used G10 as a substrate for printed circuit boards. The decorative variations of the G-10 can be in many colors and patterns. They are often used to make handles of knives and other tools. Today, this material as well as its improved variations can be used in the manufacture of PCB testers, different kinds of automated test equipment, for solders pallets or carrier pallets, for various work surfaces.

When purchasing, you can clarify your product requirements. ESD G-10 / FR4 material can be offered to customers in various sizes, according to the client’s requirements. Also, this material can be supplied with different specific surface resistivity according to customer specifications. Due to its special physical, mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties, this innovative composite material undoubtedly has a great future.
