Fabric Bakelite is a phenolic rigid laminate reinforced by a woven cloth, for use in mechanical and structural applications. It offers excellent mechanical and wear resistance. It is suitable for gears and similar applications requiring high impact strength. There are several types of fabric bakelite, with Insulect stocking F2 and F3. F2 is tougher than F3, however does not allow for as close tolerances when machining.
