Multi-Step Manufacturing Process

Norplex-Micarta Manufacturing ProcessNorplex-Micarta utilizes state-of-the-art equipment for each step in the manufacturing process, from materials preparation and treating to pressing and finishing. First, the substrate is processed through the resin compound. Then, the impregnated material is semi-cured in a treater oven. 

Once the material is treated, it is either issued to the customer as pre-preg, sent to the press for sheet grades, or sent to tube winding machines for tubing grades. Finally, the material is trimmed, stripped, sanded, and packaged as required.

Norplex-Micarta is the leading manufacturer of high performance thermoset composite materials. We work directly with customers to manufacture the highest quality specialty sheet products, pre-pregs, rods and molded shapes, and tubes to meet demanding composite applications for our OEMs and fabricators around the world.
