NEMA Laminate vs. PBI
Both NEMA laminate and PBI are thermoset plastics. There are 12 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (18, in this case) are not shown.
For each property being compared, the top bar is NEMA laminate and the bottom bar is PBI.
