Engineered Composite Benefits

When you need materials that provide better performance - turn to Glastic for solutions. Glastic offers materials that are light in weight, more corrosion resistant and cost less.

Glastic offers a wide selection of materials and shapes, standard products and custom molding capabilities to meet your needs.

Glastic products and materials offer.
Outstanding Electrical Insulation Capability for
Low- and Medium-Voltage Equipment

Glastic composites feature inherently good dielectric properties. Specific grades add flame resistance, arc/track resistance and high temperature resistance. This is why they are used as components in delicate electronic devices, as well as rugged parts in transformers and switchgear.
High Mechanical Strength - Yet Lightweight
Composite materials have a very high strength to weight ratio. They provide many of the structural characteristics of metal or wood, but weigh less. A broad selection of reinforcing materials, resins, and other raw materials allow us to optimize a composite design to meet customer requirements.
Flame, Smoke and Toxicity
Many Glastic composites offer exceptional flame resistance. A wide selection of materials are available to meet UL subject 94V-0 Standards for flame resistance. Others are classified as Class A building materials with flame spread ratings in the 15 to 25 range. Certain grades of materials generate very low smoke and smoke toxicity when exposed to fire.
Heat Resistance
Heat resistant grades of Glastic composites offer property retention and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures. Material grades are available to meet or exceed UL temperature index ratings of 120°C to 210°C electrical and 130°C to 210°C mechanical.
Abrasion and Impact Resistance
Glastic engineered composites can withstand the effects of abrasion and impact better than most conventional materials such as hardwood and other thermoplastic or thermoset panels.
Corrosion Resistance
These materials are ideal for use where clean and attractive surfaces are desired and corrosion resistance is required. Glastic composites are tested with as many as 49 common laboratory reagents that prove to be equally resistant to splash-and-spill, as well as flame and gasses.
Ease of Fabrication
Glastic laminate sheets, channels, bars, rods and shapes can be fabricated using common tools and equipment. They can be punched, drilled, milled, sawed, sanded, sheared or routed.

Cost Effective
When compared to high-pressure laminates such as epoxy, melamine, silicone or mica, Glastic engineered composites offer an exceptional value.
