We’ll also help you value engineer your GPO-3 part to shorten lead times while increasing the value of the component.

First, a little background on GPO-3:

GP0-3 is a UL recognized plastic insulation material that performs very well in many high voltage electrical insulating applications that require high strength, flame resistance, low smoke generation and moderate heat resistance. Its most common use is to support and electrically isolate power and electrical distribution equipment.

GPO-3 applications include bus bar supports and mounting panels and high-voltage appliance insulators.

GPO-3 is composed of glass mat and/or glass roving fibers impregnated with polyester resins laminated under moderate pressure or pultruded through a die into angle, channel, I-beam, rod and tube configurations. Continue reading “What Can Monti Inc.’s GPO-3 Fabricating Capabilities Do For You?”

What’s the Difference Between Epoxy and Polyester? (Laminating Plastics for G10 and GPO-3)

difference between epoxy and polyester for g10 and gpo-3

The performance behind G10 and GPO-3 insulating material’s laminating plastic will help you understand why they are specified for different tasks. Here are several important differences between the epoxy used to laminate G10 and the polyester resin used to laminate GPO-3. Continue reading “What’s the Difference Between Epoxy and Polyester?

Why is G10 Material good for electrical insulation?

It’s tough as nails and will last a lot longer!

G10 is a fiberglass sheet laminate, a kind of composite material created by stacking multiple layers of glass cloth, soaked in epoxy resin, and then compressing the resulting material under heat until cured. It is made in flat sheets, channels and angles. G10 is very similar to carbon fiber and other high tech fiber epoxy laminates, because they are all resin-based laminates. G-10 is the toughest glass fiber resin laminate and therefore the most commonly used. It is sometimes known as Garolite or Glastic insulator.
