G-10 is a fiberglass/epoxy composite, not a phenolic material.
The "G-10" designation is derived from a NEMA (National Electrical
Association [www.nema-dot-org]) specification.
Along with many other standards, NEMA provides requirements for insulating
materials used in electrical switchgear, etc.

I have been trying to find out what the English equivalent name for G10 is.
Nobody in the composites group here has heard of it. Could someone please
post a description and specification. All I have gathered so far is that it
is a phenolic composite. Can anyone confirm/deny this? What is the
reinforcement? What are it's mechanical properties?
