Advance Material Science


Arboron possesses both good mechanical and electrical properties. It has high strength-to-weight ratio, and has excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. It is UL listed and is used in power distribution applications requiring dielectric strength, low moisture absorption, dimensional stability and good mechanical properties. Arboron can be used in many applications as a general replacement for Benelex.
