Fabric Bakelite Sheet is a versatile and economical grade of hard wearing plastic that is used in a variety of areas. Typical uses include the manufacture of wear plates, electrical insulation pads, bushes, bolt sleeves, saw guides, rollers and conveyor wheels. It machines well and can be accurately cut and drilled.

This particular type of Bakelite is manufactured from thermosetting phenol formaldehyde resin reinforced with layers of fabric. This combination is then heated and pressed to create a tough, dense materials with good heat resistance, electrical insulation properties and the ability to withstand abrasion.

Perhaps due to the fact it’s been around in one form or another since about 1907, Fabric Bakelite Sheet is known by many names. These include canvas Bakelite, phenolic Bakelite, SRBF and phenolic resin bonded fabric. Part of the reason for this naming variation is that, over time, numerous grades of Bakelite have developed with some designed for highly specific, specialised applications.

Our Fabric Bakelite Sheet is an all-round grade that provides good mechanical strength, electrical properties and insulation. It withstands temperatures up to 125°C and has a tensile strength of 63.8 MPa (for more information please see the specifications tab or the Technical Data Sheet on Fabric Bakelite located on the media tab).

Sheets of Fabric Bakelite are available in a large selection of thicknesses. Solid Bakelite Rods are also available.
