G10 – FR4 Machining – Epoxy Glass Laminates
June 25, 2018
Firstly, G10-FR4 materials are Epoxy Glass based Insulation Plastic. As such, these laminates generally offer high mechanical strength and dimensional stability. Also, extremely durable, and, maintain their properties wet or dry. Therefore, the result of this blend is a material that offers excellent ark and track resistance.

Certainly, The commonly known G10-FR4 are the most popular grades. Further, G10-FR4 glass cloth reinforced epoxy natural is a yellowish to light green color. In short, Epoxy resins are among the most versatile and widely used plastics in the electronics field. Primarily, because water absorption is virtually nil. Thus, rendering it an outstanding insulator.
Also, G10-FR4 machining material known for being the most economic choice of insulation. Also, for bespoke applications, it is a material which can be being easily machined.
Examples, G10-FR4 Materials are widely used to manufacture are Insulating supports, high voltage insulation, bus bar supports and mounting panels in electrical apparatus are just some.
Moreover, based on the needs of its particular application it comes in several grades.
Further, there are many advantages to using G10-FR4 Machining Materials. In the main, its having high structural strength. But also, excellent Electrically Insulating properties.
Also, as with most laminates, raw materials are available in standard sheets & rod sizes.
Thus, Sheet thickness ranges from 0.8mm to 50mm.
G10-FR4 Machining of Bespoke Parts
Further, All parts manufactured by Sentinel Plastics Ltd are customer specific bespoke parts. Either, from working from Prototypes, to drawings or, the making one off to hundreds of parts. Importantly, Sentinel Plastics has flexibility to meet most requirements.
Moreover, epoxy material is nearly immune to shrinkage. Hence, holding its form factor and dimensional stability. Above all, at temperatures, as high as 285° F. Thus, this property makes it ideal for use in electronic equipment. With, components that generate excessive heat. Also, should it combust at higher temperatures, the bromine added during the manufacturing process, renders it self-extinguishing. In short, another important factor for making its use in aerospace engineering so prominent.
