Firstly, the make up of GPO3 Machining materials is a blend of fiberglass with a polyester resin. The result of this blend is a material that offers excellent ark and track resistance. Not only does it come in sheet form. The various grades of GPO materials are available in rod, tube and shape forms. The commonly known GPO3 is one of the most popular grades of GPO. This is a popular grade, specified by many Technical departments, mainly due to its high temperature insulation capabilities. As a result of being the most economic choice of GPO material, it is also noteworthy for being a material which can be easily machined to bespoke applications. Some examples of what GPO3 Materials are widely used to manufacture are Insulating supports, high voltage insulation, bus bar supports and mounting panels in electrical apparatus are just some examples.
Based on the needs of its particular application GPO comes in several grades. They are available in sheet, rod, tube and shapes. Sheet thickness range from 0.8mm to 50mm.
GPO3 has a thermal index of 120°C electrical and 155°C mechanical.
There are many advantages to using GPO3 Machining Materials. Having high structural strength as well as excellent Electrically Insulating properties.
Raw GPO3 materials are supplied to Sentinel in standard sheets sizes. It is also available in a varying cataloged selection of channels & angles.
