POPULAR CARRIER MATERIALS*
LAMITEX Epoxy-based material reinforced with fiberglass. Solid alternative to steel; also known as G-10 & FR-4.
PVC Thermoplastic vinyl, commonly used for lapping thick parts. High strength-to-weight ratio & economical cost.
LEXAN Polycarbonate plastic without fiber reinforcement, Lexan discourages scratching in polishing applications.
PHENOLIC Stronger than most plastics, Phenolic is a resin binder reinforced with cotton fabric. Typically used with oil-based slurries.
VINYL Softer than Lexan, it is an economical choice for short runs on smaller machines.

Manufacturing carriers in-house allows UPI engineers and technicians to review designs, carefully inspect materials, closely monitor production, and ultimately, deliver tolerances that promote flatness and boost surface finish.
