Bakelized cloth is divided into three types with different features and mechanical strength according to its threads density:
The “F” type (44 threads per cm2) is characterized by its mechanical strength and good dielectric properties;
The “FF” type (6o threads per cm2), thanks to its composition, is the most suitable to shear and process even the smallest and more complex parts;
The “G type” (24 threads per cm2) is a special product made to order, made of a sackcloth to boost its mechanical and self-lubricating characteristics.
La Misolet also provides graphite-filled Bakelized Cloth, which has excellent auto-lubricating qualities and excellent low friction workability characteristics.
Bakelized cloth mechanical characteristics are significantly more than bakelized paper ones, even though, from a dielectric point of view, they are less performing.
Bakelized cloth can be easily sheared at room temperature up to a thickness of 2mm; on the contrary, greater thicknesses need to be pre-heated.
Low-thickness bakelized cloth is used to produce washers for small electrical engines, shim washers for crankshaft, highly stressed flexural insulation vanes such as horns for vehicles. Larger-thickness cloth is used to produce vanes for vacuum centrifugal pumps, gaskets for metal pipes, shaft seals for hydraulic systems’ pistons, clutch discs, bushings, sliding guides, rolling mills layers; it is mostly used in robust, auto-lubricating and silent gears.
Bakelized cloth can also be used to manufacture tubes and rounds; the latter can be either turned from plates or wrapped.
