Fishpaper is the name for the electrical grade of vulcanized fiber. Fishpaper properties include light weight, and ease of forming and punching. Fishpaper is unique because it is more resistant to heat and cold than comparable plastic material. Available in thinner gauges, typically from 0.0078″ to 0.062″ thick; fishpaper’s standard color is grey.
Vulcanized Fiber is a hard, durable, chemically pure cellulose product that contains no resin or bonding agents.
