Anyone know if G-10 epoxy/glasscloth laminate is available anywhere in Canada?? it is a very usefull lightweight laminate, sometimes called "Proskin". Commonly available in the USA but can't find it in Canada.

Re: G-10 in Canada?????

I got some 1/16" years ago at the local (GTA) electronics supply shop called Sayal. You could see if they have a branch out in BC. If not google it with the filter to Canadian Web sites only. Also check local electronics supply stores and plastics stores. I have bought it in thicknesses up to 1/2" for use in 16,000 volt induction heaters, so it is/was available in Canada. I can't remember where I got the thicker one from but I think it was Warehoused Plastic Sales in Toronto. I am sure they will ship and have a web site so if all else fails...

I assume you are looking for it for control horns. Great application.

"G" often referes to the Garolite brand. Or otherwise known as G10.

Do a search for: Garolite G10

You will get a hundred hits.

Minimum ordering is usually around the $200.00 mark.

I bought some 1/8, a long time back from Warehouse Plastic, but they never stock it, and had to be pre-ordered. Got hit with the minimum special buy, for a sheet.

If you have access to vacuum equipment it's pretty easy to make it up yourself. It's just resin and cloth that's infused under vacuum.

Different kinds of resin can be used, ie:

- fire retarding resin
- flame proof resin
- high die-electric resin

Garolite colour codes their product with different colour pigments, makes it easier to identify on the shelf.

First option is to try and get a small piece for your project someplace, as opposed to going to plan B.

In the past, I've made flat sheet, and even angle or wierd contoured shapes.
