BSEN61212 EPGC23 T38 Epoxy Glass Flame Retardant Tube SRBG

Material Details

Grade: T38 (FR). (Type: Glass Fibre - SRBG)
Description: Epoxy Glass. Flame retardant
Comments: A high quality epoxy glass tube manufactured from brominated epoxy resin with a medium weave glass-cloth suitable for use at up to 130 deg C (Class B).
T38 tubes offer mechanical and electrical properties similar to those of T36 with improved resistance to burning. T38 is less susceptible to stress cracking where the tube has a thick wall than other glass grades.
Specifications: BSEN61212 EPGC23 The closest NEMA equivalent to this specification is FR4.
Body Colour: Pale Green
Standard Finish: Ground (unless otherwise stated)
Size: 1220mm trimmed (max) Thickness Range: Min ID 10.0mm, Min wall 1.0mm(Ground) 2.0mm(as produced). †
