Gillfab® 1002


Gillfab® 1002 is a high temperature laminate made from phenolic resin with fiberglass cloth reinforcement.


The laminate is designed to be used in structural applications near heat sources, where strength at elevated temperatures is required.


  • Very low smoke evolution in a fire
  • High mechanical strength
  • Heat resistant
  • Can be painted with proper surface treatment
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Service temperature range: 350°F (177°C) in continuously elevated temperature, 500°F (260°C) in intermittently elevated temperature
