Machining & Processing Guide for Laminate, Tube and Rod.
In general, Bakelaque laminate sheets may be machined using normal machine tools, though some modification and adjustment may be necessary to give the best results.
The thermal conductivity of plastics is lower than that of metals. Heat generated during machining operations cannot dissipate as readily as it does when cutting metals. Heat build up can lead to dimensional inaccuracy and in severe cases can even lead to scorching damage to the product. Cutting procedures are similar to those used for brass.
