New from Norplex-Micarta (Postville, Iowa) is RT130X, a high-strength tubing composed of a glass fabric with an epoxy resin system. Designed for high electrical and mechanical strength as well as flame-resistance, it offers good machining characteristics — specifically cleaner machining with less exposed fiber. Targeted applications include timing wheels, light-duty gears, laser housings and many others. RT130X can be manufactured in standard lengths of 18 to 36 inches (457 to 914 mm), with inside diameters ranging from 0.094 to 48 inches (2.39 to 1,219 mm), outside diameters ranging from 0.156 to 49.50 inches (3.96 to 1,257 mm) and wall thicknesses of 0.031 to 0.750 inch (0.787 to 19 mm). RT130X complies with NEMA FR-4 and is flame-resistant to a UL94 V-O rating.
