Contaval 2017 is a specialised, rigid laminate manufactured from E-glass cloth, graphite and epoxy-resin. This conductive material has excellent mechanical properties and shows conductivity both parallel and perpendicular to the layers in its construction. Contaval 2017 also features high chemical resistance and is used in applications reaching 180ºC.
Available in a wide range of thicknesses, AG offers Contaval 2017 in both sheet and cut component form. Our specialised fabrication facilities and years of experience working with this material enables us to offer precision machined, cut or thicknessed components such as conductive slot fillers or soldering bath carriers for printed circuits when sensitive components require protecting against static charges. The excellent mechanical properties of Contaval 2017 have also led to its widespread usage as an economical explosion panel.
AVAILABLE SHEET SIZES OF CONTAVAL 2017
Thickness 0.2 – 1.0mm : 2000 x 1070 mm
Thickness > 1.0mm : 2000 x 1050 mm
Though not commonly stocked, AG also offers Contaval 2576 GP as an indent item. This highly specialised grade is designed specifically for use as a solder bath for printed circuit board where sensitive components require Electro Static Discharge conditions. For more information on either of these high quality materials please do not hesitate to contact your local AG branch or representative.
