Phenolic


Do you need a true, resin-based phenolic? We provide phenolic labels, nameplates and tags made from Norplex brand Phenolic.

This high quality lamacoid sheet is engraved on one side. The top layer is removed to show the inner layer.

The term Phenolic is often used to refer to any layered plastic. Actually, phenolic is a very specific, resin-based material. It is no longer widely used for signage in General Manufacturing. Modern acrylic based plastics have taken over most of that market. Phenolic is a good choice in very specific applications. See our chart below.
