Other Industrial Laminates, NEMA G-5/G-9, G-7

G-5 and G-9 are composed of a continuous woven glass cloth base impregnated with melamine resin, which is the hardest, most rigid and abrasion resistant of the resins used for industrial laminates. They are normally gray in color and exhibit good dimensional stability and arc resistance. However, prolonged exposure to elevated temperature can adversely affect these industrial laminates' mechanical and electrical properties. G-9 is the more resistant to environmental conditions of these 2 grades. G-7 is also composed of a continuous woven glass cloth base, but with a silicone resin binder. G-7 has excellent heat and arc resistance, so it is used for electronic parts exposed to high temperature.
