NorPLY™ 1002 laminate is a cured glass epoxy composite material based on a unique, nonwoven, parallel filament construction. This type of construction minimizes filament stress that can shorten fatigue life in conventional reinforced plastics. NorPLY™ 1002 uses continuous e-glass filaments. NorPLY™ 1002 is supplied as cured flat panels. Panel sizes up to 48″ x 72″ (1220mm x 1830mm) are available in thicknesses ranging from 0.030″ to 2.0″ (0.76mm to 51mm).

NorPLY™ advantages over commercial glass epoxy grades:

  • Excellent fatigue life
  • Weight reduction
  • Less downtime in harsh environments
  • Greater capacity to store energy than 1060 spring steel
  • Increased design options (springs to rail joints)
  • High impact strength
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • High strength-to-weight performance
  • High strain capability
  • Low notch sensitivity
  • Resistant to cleaning fluids and hydrocarbons

NorPLY™ can be used in many applications including:

  • Vibratory springs
  • Dock shelter staves
  • Shocks and struts
  • Insulation spacers
  • Insulated rail joints
  • Flexible couplings
  • Furniture springs
  • Product sheet
