Norplex-Micarta® MC223 – Phenolic Cotton/Linen Sheet consists of a medium-weave cotton phenolic composite specifically formulated to meet MIL-P-18324D requirements. Easy to machine, this product offers superior load-bearing properties and a low coefficient of friction. Known in the shipbuilding industry as “Marine Micarta”, MC223 has long been used in the industry to make dry, water-cooled, and lubricated bearings. Applications include pintle and stave-type bearings for rubber shafts. MC223 is also suitable for heavy equipment applications that require finer machining profiles than those provided by bearing-grade laminates.
