Topic tags/keywords: resource question milling

We’re looking for a source from which to obtain phenolic resin panels. We’re looking to use the phenolic resin panel for part of a vacuum system for our CNC. 1/2’ thick, minimum 24” x 60”, or larger, if size makes a difference. Anywhere near Dallas / Ft Worth TX would be a bonus, just to be able to pick it up.

FYI – we’ve sourced a melamine sheet with iron on edging locally, if we can’t find the preferred phenolic resin panel.

Thanks in advance for any consideration you can give this request.

US Plastics has abut any thing you could want in phenolic sheets, and based on their prices they are very proud of it. Even so, they ave it and deal with shipping to commercial customers.

You can buy phenolic backer sheets cheaply (4X8 is in the $9 to $12 price range) and laminate them to whatever substrate you want. They should be available wherever laminates are sold in your area.

Perhaps this will meet your requirements and not break the bank.

Thanks for all your suggestions. We’re following up on some of them to see if they’re viable for our particular application.
