  • Description

This Grade G10-FR4 fiberglass-epoxy laminate is chosen for its extremely high strength and high dimensional stability over temperature.

- Use it for the same things you would with carbon fiber, but at a fraction of the cost.

Specifications:
Garolite Density: 1.83g/cm3 (1.06oz/in3)

*Tip: If you need to countersink garolite, or are worried about frayed edges, simply drip or dab some thin CA glue onto the exposed areas.  The garolite will absorb it and become much stronger.

Camo Garolite

- 28th November 2010

Seems to be on par with the garolite I used to get from Mcmaster. The camo design is only on one side, this was good in my case as its easy to tell which side is 'up'. The other side is translucent so you can see the camo but not as clearly.

Tough and Easy to Work With. Many Uses.

- 15th February 2010

I've used Garolite purchased from FingerTech Robotics in most of my insect class combat robots. It is strong and easy to work with. I've used it as top and bottom plates in my 1lb and 3lb robots, and as a top cover on my 6lb robot. The Garolite baseplate in my 3lb robot even withstood a fire that occurred in the robot!

Here is a video of my 6lb Mantisweight robot, Zillion, using black Garolite as a top plate to keep the electronics inside of the robot:

The other robot in the video is also using blue Garolite as a top cover.


awesome material for antweights

- 02nd November 2009

I used it as part of the frame rails in my ant fangus 2.1 with great success, it proved to hold out better then my previous version which used pocketed 1/4" poly. I have also seen builders use it as wedges with a fair amount of success. Great material, and a great price
