Lamitex® laminated plastics are used in numerous applications where they are either submersed or are in constant contact with corrosive chemicals. The degree of chemical resistance of the laminate will depend on the nature and concentration of the chemical agent along with temperature and duration of exposure. The ease of fabrication, light-weight, and resistance to friction, light, and heat are other major advantages for Lamitex composites in these applications.
Our years of experience dealing with the steel and hot rolling industries have led us to one conclusion; for these guys, time is money. Being able to keep a mill running longer between the change-out times is a topic that appeals to both mill maintenance and purchasing alike. Here at Franklin; we have found an answer to this issue in the form of our Lamitex® grade SBE100.
Water or moisture absorption is important in determining the value of industrial laminates as a control of the uniformity of the product, affects the mechanical, electrical and chemical properties of the laminate and has a bearing on a laminate’s appearance and dimensional stability.
