A wide array of reinforcements and resin systems
that can be customized and adapted to various environments.
From high electromagnetic stress, to cryogenic storage, to self-lubricating bearings and wear pads.
Norplex-Micarta high performance materials are a good fit in many types of medical equipment. Parts made from cloth substrates are quieter and longer lasting than many metal parts and do not require lubricants, which may not be allowed in sterile environments.
In addition, thermoset materials can withstand the chemicals and temperatures used in the sterilization of devices. Applications range from stethoscope plates to static dissipative X-ray and operating tables and include coil components in sophisticated MRI units.
Norplex-Micarta also designs special composite materials that provide low attenuation features for use with X-ray units.
Thermoset materials are non-conductive, non-magnetic, high strength, and reasonably lightweight, making them suitable for all types of mobile medical devices.
Made from kraft paper and phenolic resin system. The cover plies use a semi-conductive phenolic resin, while the core is insulating.
Applications include X-ray tables in operating rooms and other applications where X-ray clarity is required.
NP510A is a woven glass fabric composite combined with epoxy resin system. It is engineered to provide NEMA grade FR-4 properties. This material contains bromine on the epoxy resin backbone. NP510A is certifiable to MIL-I-24768/27, Type GEE-F.
A glass fabric with a specially formulated epoxy resin system resulting in excellent electrical characteristics and superior physical properties at cryogenic temperatures.
It has low thermal conductivity and has been produced specifically for use in cryogenic applications.
