NorPLY™, formerly manufactured as ScotchPLY and CyPly, is now produced by Norplex Advanced Composites and sold with exclusivity through Franklin Fibre-Lamitex Corp.

Franklin Fibre – Lamitex Corp is an authorized distributor/fabricator of NorPLY vibratory springs, shocks and struts, dock shelter staves, insulation spacers, furniture springs and flexible/dynamic couplings. 

NorPLY™ 1002 laminate is a cured glass epoxy composite material based on a unique, nonwoven, parallel filament construction. This type of construction minimizes filament stress that can shorten fatigue life in conventional reinforced plastics. NorPLY™ 1002 uses continuous e-glass filaments NorPly 1002 is available in panel sizes up to 48” x 72” in thicknesses ranging from .030” to 2.0”.

Franklin Fibre can quote and supply parts by the FP grade designation if available. We custom machine custom and standard size slat stabilizers (spring slats) for horizontal trough feeders and other types of vibratory conveyors. We also manufacture and fabricate phenolic spacers often used in spring packs.

NorPLY™ 1003 prepreg can be fabricated for various high-performance applications such as retaining ring insulation for power generation and leaf springs for transportation applications.

NorPLY 1002 is available in unidirectional, cross-ply or isotropic fiber orientation, each offering a different balance of physical properties. All are the traditional ScotchPly formulations with a nonwoven parallel glass filament construction originally developed by 3M and now processed with new precision process systems and tested and certified to published performance data.

Norply Advantages over commercial glass epoxy grades are:
  • Excellent fatigue life
  • Weight reduction
  • Less downtime in harsh environments
  • Greater capacity to store energy than 1060 spring steel
  • Increased design options (springs to rail joints)
  • High impact strength
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • High strength-to-weight performance
  • High strain capability
  • Low notch sensitivity
  • Resistant to cleaning fluids and hydrocarbons
