  • insulating board

    I am trying to remember the name of some red insulating board we used to use at a plant I worked at. And once someone can help me with a name, can someone point me to a place to get some small scraps.
    thanks.

        How much? What size/thickness? Does it have to be red?

            I can get the actual dimensions if you're interested. I may have some other odd-shaped pieces, too.

                Not the same stuff...

                You may want the bright red "GPO-3" insulating board, which is NOT the linen-phenolic "micarta" as per the picture, but a glass-epoxy material rated UL 94V-0. That material can be used in direct contact with voltage/opposite polarity, etc.

                You can get it in 12 x 12 inch sheets of varying thickness at MSC and also at McMaster-Carr, IIRC.
                CNC machines only go through the motions.
