NP310E (NEMA CE) consists of a cotton canvas type fabric and electrically insulating phenolic resin system. NP310E is easy to machine and operates with less noise than metal. In addition, this material is not as abrasive as fiberglass alternatives when used in wear applications. NP310E can be used in explosion-proof environments. This material is commonly used to make gears, pulleys, rollers, and guides, as well as electrically insulated parts such as control boards. NP310E complies with the requirements of MIL-I-24768/14, Type FBG.
