Phenolic Linen (Micarta) CNC machined by SendCutSend
Our Linen Phenolic (also known as Micarta) is a high-density mixture of phenolic resin and fine weave cotton cloth fabric. Linen grade phenolic material is more machinable than other grades, and can retain finer details than similar materials. It has the best electrical properties of cotton-grade industrial laminates due to its superior moisture resistance.
