Franklin has built its business on manufacturing, fabricating and distributing industrial high-pressure laminates. Lamitex® composite materials are engineering materials made from fibrous reinforcement such as cotton cloth, paper or woven fiberglass cloth, which are bonded together with high quality plastic resins. The layers are pressed together under high-pressure and the resin is baked until it becomes solid, fusing the material into a tough, strong composite. Combining different resins, - such as phenolic, epoxy, melamine or silicone - with different types of reinforcement creates a full range of Lamitex® grades to suit a wide variety of applications. Lamitex® high-pressure laminates combine mechanical strength and electrical insulation with chemical and weather resistance. They're rigid with high strength - to - weight ratio and can be machined to very close tolerances required on finished components.
