It is composed of cotton fabric combined with a phenolic resin system that has been enhanced with a molybdenum disulfide powder to reduce wear. NP313 is easy to machine and operates with less noise than metal. In addition, this material is not as abrasive as fiberglass alternatives when used in wear applications. Applications include a variety of parts subject to wear and yet, NP313 maintains most of its electrical insulation properties. NP313 has better wear properties than NP310 and is used where additional lubrication is very low or non-existent.
